I Spy Physical Fun

Throughout the summer I carry my camera in my car and pocket while I ride my bike around town. While out and about, I always seem to see one of my students riding a bike, playing baseball, jumping rope, playing tennis, etc. I take a picture of them in the act of physical activity and put it on the bulletin board that states "I Spy Physical Fun Over the Summer". I even can catch a few teachers out for a walk or a swim too.

Teaching Suggestions/Tips:

Make sure to ask permission before posting the pictures!
