Carlton Viveiros Elementary School

Physical Education with Pumpkins in the Pumpkin Patch

The physical education teachers at the Viveiros School, Mrs. Abrams and Mr. Sousa, have been instructing students in the correct form of throwing, rolling, and striking a ball, by having them take part in the "Pumpkins in the Pumpkin Patch" activity.  Aiming skills have also been worked on.  To begin the activity, equipment is set up in two halves on the basketball court to resemble a "pumpkin patch."  Students are then divided into two teams.  They try to knock down the other team's pumpkins (pins) by rolling, throwing, or striking the ball with their hands.  One student from each team acts as a guard for the pumpkins while the others attempt to knock down the pumpkins of the opposing team.  Students were excited to take part in this physical education activity during the past month.
