A New Parachute in Physical Education

“A circle is a round straight line with a hole in the middle.”

~Mark Twain~

This year The Saklan School got a brand new parachute for their physical education program! “Parachuting” is great fun and a healthy activity for students of all ages.

The parachute strengthens primarily shoulder, arm and hand muscles, and at the same time allows for practice of basic locomotor skills, such as running, leaping, skipping, and galloping. Teamwork and cooperation are essential in order to successfully complete many of the fun activities which can be created by the parachute.

Students of all grades love playing with the parachute. The non-competitive, rhythmic social interactions are a great start to a new school year.

Let’s go Saklan!
