Students learn balance, spatial and body awareness, and bilateral coordination through practices such as yoga, tai chi, and/or dance, as they plan and develop an inclusive and accessible instructional exercise video for adopted “grandparents” at a local Senior Center or retirement community.

Note: The timing for this project may vary depending on the frequency of your physical education class meetings and the nature of your partnership with the Senior Center.
