The Muscle Room Jumping Game

The children created a jumping game in the Muscle Room.
They demonstrated locomotor skills balancing on the
edge of the wooden box and jumping as far as possible.
They were able to measure, document and compare
the distance of their jumps.
Together with their teachers they read and discussed
the notes they wrote and pictures they drew
about their game.
