This module includes activities that are designed to develop movement concepts and body control. Educational gymnastics is not the same type of gymnastics seen on TV during the Olympics. It focuses on teaching introductory skills and concepts in a safe way related to traveling, balancing, rolling, and the transfer of weight. High level skills that require advanced spotting techniques (e.g., back handsprings) are not included as a part of this educational gymnastics module. Our focus remains on safe movement exploration versus competitive gymnastics proficiency. Activities in this module provide fun challenges to students of all ability levels with safety always the priority.
