Kindergarten and First Grade: Getting Global in P.E. Classes!
Global PE classes learned that Greece has many statues. Their statues are of warriors, gods, goddesses and famous Greeks throughout history. After seeing pictures of Greek statues and learning the Greek word for statue, agalmata, classes played a game from Greece called "Agalmata." One student would count while the others moved around. When the counter yelled AGALMATA! the other students froze in place forming statues. The counter would do silly things to try to get the statues to move! The last one standing would be the new counter. Our kindergarten and first grade students really enjoyed this globalization activity! They kept it moving in P.E. global style!
