4th Graders Have A Vision

We were at the tail end of our football unit and just started using our brand new NFL Play 60 Flag Football Kit. The students were having fun with the new equipment and the following week, they came to me asking to have a flag football game between the two fourth grade classes I teach. They said they had been practicing after school and on the weekends. The students went to the principal to get permission. The game was held on November 4, 2016, with the whole school attending the event. The students selected teams, had cheerleading squads, and a game Mascot wearing a traditional Viking’s helmet with horns and braids. The media specialist recorded the game, which was held on a crisp fall day. Everyone enjoyed the game. It was truly a school community event envisioned by the students.
