Mini Winter Olympics Teach Motor Skills

The Annual Readiness Olympics is an opportunity for students to practice motor skills in fun engaging ways. Simulated "skiing," "ice skating," and "ice hockey" are enjoyed by everyone. There are also activities ranging from bowling to sledding and snowball fights using balled up pieces of paper. Each class chooses a country to represent and when they are finished with their activities all students place a hand print on the Olympic Wall Flame and receive a medal!
