Throughout this semester I had the privilege to go to St. Mary’s for their after school program. I created a variety of games for different age groups that incorporated loco motor and non loco motor, and manipulative skills. Throughout the games we had to evaluate the kids to see who was physically developed and who needed more work. You can check my lab write-up to see how we did the evaluations and questions our Professor asked us.
