where are the superheros?
In prelab we worked on the games that we would be playing for the second teaching experience at ST. Mary's. The games are focusing on leaping, horizontal jumping, and sliding. These three skill are basic motor developmental skills. I made an adaptation to the game of sharks and minnows. I named it Batman Through Gotham. The kids who are Batman (the minnows) are trying to get to the other side but must leap. This makes it seem like Batman is on his grapple hook and swinging. The three in the middle are the villains, named Joker, Penguin, and Riddler (the sharks) are trying to tag Batman and are sliding around. When Batman is tagged he begins to jump to the other side. Once second time he is sliding around. The third time he joins the villains as another villain of Batman. When I thought of this game it looked like it was a perfect game for the group I was assigned which was the Cafeteria Group.
