Date:  Fall 2010.
Reflection:  During this past semester I spent time at St. Mary's Elementary School.  While I was there I was able to add on my experience with kids, play games with them and observe how their motor development could grow over time.  The kids ages were from Pre K to 6th grade.  While I was observing the kids and their motor development I had to take into consideration the kids age, gender and maturity. In lab 3 we observed leap, horizontal jump and slide.
