As the PE Dept at NTHS, Devin Ginty and I are always looking for indoor activities to enhance our PE curriculum during the long, unpredictable winter months . We have both taught bowling units at previous teaching assignments and it proves to be an excellent skill builder for both fine and gross motor movements. Not to mention, the kids love it! If we are gifted this grant, we would be able to safely set up 10 bowling lanes in the gym (or outside if the weather permitted!) and our classes would be able to be divided into small team groups for skills and competition.
To note: We would like to purchase the In-School Bowling Deluxe Package from FlagHouse that come with TEN sets that include: Curriculum book with 13 step-step skills progression lessons, fitness activities that incorporate math and literacy as well as cardiovascular games, 20ft carpeted bowling lanes, weighted pins, pin layout grids, 4lb rubber bowling balls, scorecards and carrying bags. https://www.flaghouse.com/Sports/Bowling/Sets/IN---SCHOOL-BOWLING-DELUXE-Package.axd
Note there is a second, less favorable but cheaper option in notes below.
