Date: Spring 2010

Throughout this spring semester, I was able to visit St.Mary's school for my motor development class. While at St.Mary's, I observed and assessed  fundamental locomortor, non-locomotor, and manipulative skills. I also came up with a variety of different games that incorporated these skills. To asses the students on these skills we used  TGMD-2: Test for Gross Motor Development- Second Edition- Revised. View lab four where we assessed the students in throwing and catching skills.
