Human Pyramid Competition
- Kathy Kelly, ATLANTIC TECHNICAL CENTER & TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL
- Let's Dance!
- Teamwork, Physical Activity Participation
At the end of each semester, students from my HOPE Classes were challenged to create a five minute tumbling routine, in which they had to incorporate various moves to form human pyramids.
How did students and adults work together as a team?
Students were placed in groups of eight or more and had to create four unique pyramids with the techniques that they learned in class. The students learned various tumbling skills, such as forward and backward rolls. The biggest challenges that they faced were problem solving and team cooperation. Students had to work on their differences in order to resolve conflicts and perform in front of the entire school. Teachers became very involved by encouraging and supporting the students.
