Classroom Gym Class
City:  Cincinnati, OH
School:  Horizon Science Academy - Cincinnati
Teacher:  Mr. Hildreth

My students need:

I am requesting these resources because once the weather turns cold, which it eventually will do in Ohio, we will be forced indoors until spring. We currently do not have a gymnasium in my school so our winter PE is in a classroom. With these materials we can have numerous lessons where the students are still very interactive and moving. Both activities are great for hand eye coordination and I am really hoping the cup stacking brings out some competitive fun among my classes.


"Repping" Up For A New Season
City: Miami, FL
School Miami Senior High School
Teacher Mr. Herrera

My students need:

My weight room is in need of an iPad mini because it is mobile, I can use it to show students videos on how to maintain proper safety procedures and how to use proper techniques while working out, as I visit the different rotations. Also, since I do not have access to a computer in the area, students can use it to maintain proper workout records while exercising.
