My First Blog

We looked at differences in ages and gender when looking at how they interacted and did motor skills. When looking at students jump rope I found that older kids were able to jump in while the rope was already swinging, touch the ground, and jump for long periods at a time. Some of the younger kids needed help rythmically knowing when to jump and we gave them several trys before they were able to get the pattern of jumping rope. We also looked at the age differences because some of the older kids we found it was harder to keep their attention because they were uninterested. Their were gender differences too. I think that sometimes it was harder to get some of the girls ibvolved in the activities because they were with their friends on the side. Also when looking at them in the cafeteria based on their gender they would build differnet types of things.
