Parachute unit in Physical Education class

Students love the parachute unit in Physical Education class. This unit also proves that you can have fun while learning too! Some of the skills the parachute activities work on include strength building (it takes a lot of work to get that parachute up so high), hand-eye coordination, following directions and working as a team to reach the final outcome (keeping the parachute in the air while they all get under it etc.) Ask your students about climbing the mountain, popping popcorn, building igloos, making waves and having a campfire with the parachute, it is sure to put a smile on their face and yours!
