Cowboy theme, yeehaaa!

This lab we had a western theme and many of the Cortland students, including myself, dressed up like a cowboy or cowgirl.  It was a lot of fun and it was funny to see the reaction of the students.  We observed Kinder- gardeners performing leaps, horizontal jumps, and slides. They were very good at these skills for the most part with only a few errors in their arm movements. The game I introduced to the students was called frozen beanbag.

This game includes: 
- All students get a beanbag and place it on top of their head.
- If the beanbag falls off a students head, that student is frozen.
- To become unfrozen another student must bend over, pick
up the beanbag and place it on the head of the student
who dropped it, without dropping their own. 
- Students can hold the beanbag on their head when they bend over.
- I modified this game to have all the beanbags represent cowboy hats so that they could all pretend they had cowboy hats!
