The HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students headed out for fun with their peers to practice their bowling skills; their motto was “Be bold and go for the strike!” When students arrived at the bowling alley, they first had to find their correct bowling shoe size and then change into them. Once shoes were on, students headed to their lane, chose their right bowling ball size, and joined their team members.
Students received a brief tutorial on how to bowl; they learned to hold the ball and, most importantly, show good sportsmanship toward their teammates. Each student did a fantastic job trying to strike as many pins as possible. When Melanie was ready to take her turn, she surprised herself and made a strike! Everyone was so proud of her!
In addition to having lots of fun, bowling required students to practice sharing and treating their teammates with kindness and respect. Stay tuned to the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. class next Community Based Instruction fieldtrip, as they head to see the new movie, Strange World.
