Students in 4th Year Primary are working on different types of coordination. One of these types is eye-hand coordination. Its main goal is to make sure our vision works in unison with the delicate motor skills of our hands and fingers.
In groups, we did a five-exercise circuit based on the the manipulation of objects: throwing them, catching them, striking them. We even did some work with balls of different sizes and colours! The exercises were the following: throwing a basketball, steering a small ball with a hockey stick, throwing rings onto a cone, throwing a frisbee and hitting a tennis ball with a racket.
Each group practised each activity for five minutes until all of them were done. The objective of this activity was to develop and enrich students’ reaction time.
