St. Mary's lab #6

The activity that we did in the final lab was based on an Easter theme. I think that we did a really good job with the activity. It started with Kylie pretending she was the Easter bunny and that Sean the big bad ogre stole all her eggs. They had to do an obstacle course type activity. They had to roll over a mat and crawl through a tunnel. After that they had to leap over mats and then cross a balance beam and jump from pad to pad that were on the swamp. Once they got through all the obstacles they got to take an egg back from the Easter basket and needed to skip back to give them to the Easter bunny. This activity was short and it could have only lasted for about 3 minutes but we found ways of making the activity last longer and more interesting so the children would not get bored. We would steal eggs back from the Easter bunny acting like we were helping the ogre steal the eggs. The kids really did get involved in the activity and each child seemed like they enjoyed it.
St. Mary's was a great experience for me to learn things about kids that I did not notice before.
