Artifact: Motor Development – Lab Three

March 3, 2012

During my field experience at St. Mary’s Elementary School I would observe two children performing specific motor skills.  During lab three I observed how the children would leap, horizontally jump, and slide.  As a physical educator I will be able to look back on these labs and use them as tools to assess my future students.  After observing the abilities of the students I can now adjust activities to help correct and improve their motor skills so they can do them correctly and continue to improve throughout their life.
