Mason Intermediate fifth graders participated in a week-long Olympic Games event during the week of August 22-26.
Students competed in five Olympic event-style activities and also enjoyed sno-cones at the end of their class period. The activities were tied into the following week's health lesson on Components of Fitness.
"While I was watching the Olympic Games over the summer, I thought the students could learn about the Five Components of Fitness by competing in Olympic style events and have some fun too!" explained fifth grade Health Education teacher Steve Tabar.
"Students competed in five events and attempted to beat their own score or time for each event. The weather was great and having great parent volunteers help out made the event a success!"
