Visual aids to support gymnastics skills in physical education. Animal walks, rolls, jumps, balances, weight transfers, and title pages!
Many of our students in physical education learn through doing... some some students benefit from information being presented a little differently. Incorporate these visual aids to reach those learners who are more successful when they can see/read their content! Each skill has performance cues included around the visual to help our students focus on key elements of the skill.
