PE Update: Athletic Identity Project Launches in First Grade

One of our department mottos is that every student is an athlete. In order to reflect and celebrate that message, PE is collaborating with our library and technology and innovation departments to launch the Athletic Identity Project.

First, students read a couple of books in the Erskine Library about what it means to be an athlete. Then, in PE, we talked about the idea that every student is an athlete and what that might mean. We introduced sports trading cards to show students one way to represent our athletic identities and mapped out what our cards would look like. During the next class, students explored various equipment and athletic poses that would appear on their cards. Lastly, with the help of the tech and innovation department, students will make their very own cards during their library time! Be on the lookout for these sure-to-be collector’s items, and remember that we can all shine and be athletic in different ways.
