for my Safety Week unit in PE I was thinking about having my 2nd and 3rd graders get in small groups and come up with their own sets of swimming safety rules, and bike safety rules. (one grade level does one and the other grade level does the other.) i figured that would be more interesting then me getting up there and telling them about it all. my question is will the 2nd graders be able to put together sentences and thoughts like that? our 3rd graders take standardized writing tests so i figured they could handle it but i don't really know. as a PE teacher i don't know my kids academically like that!
