Mr. Ken Strahan
Good morning and welcome to virtual PE. My goal is to make weekly suggestions and I want you to check this page twice per week to see what's going on. April is usually fitness month, so I'll be posting lots of videos for you to look at. The most important thing you can do for the next few months is get outside and play. You need fresh air and sunshine. Play games, play sports, tag, workout, etc. It really doesn't matter what you do, as long as you're active. My son and I are determined to workout two times per day. First workout will be outside playing a game or sport, and the second will be inside doing yoga, calisthenics, doing natural resistance bodyweight exercises, and other forms of training. So far we're doing very well. Sessions have been 45 minutes to an hour in duration each.

WEEK OF MARCH 30
Hey kiddos. We all ready completed the shuttle run earlier in the year. This is a test we do in K-5. A more challenging test is the NFL Combine 60 yard shuttle, and a less challenging test, the NFL Combine 20 yard shuttle. Most of these tests are in 5 and 10 yard increments. You'll need a tape measure to mark, and a few indicators such as cones, hat, glove, or anything that acts as a marker. If you want to compete, grab a stopwatch or use a phone app with a stopwatch.

Week of March 23rd
Hello 4th graders. I hope you are well and adjusting.
The goal this week is to review your journal. There's a good amount of information, and I suggest we do a review this week prior to starting again. A fun thing you can do is ask your older siblings these questions. Do they remember the 12 Apostles? They probably had me in 4th grade, so at dinner time, check their knowledge and have discussions on this years topics. Your siblings might remember the Jeopardy game we played also.
Next week we will begin right where we left off- The Garden of Gethsemane at the top of Mount of Olives.
Week of March 30th
Good Day 4th graders. There are literally dozens of videos on youtube to watch that explain the Garden of Gethsemane. I have attached an animated video below. It's 5 minutes plus, but this video misses a few things that other videos have and vice versa.
Here is a summary of events...
1. Jesus walks to the Garden with the Apostles after the Last supper
2. He tells them to stay awake while he prays.
3. He asks God to save him from this task.
4. He is tempted by the devil
5. He catches the Apostles sleeping and states the story of "You will deny knowing me 3 times before the Cock crows"
6. He eventually is visited by an angel to calm him.
7. He and the Apostles hear a commotion coming towards them. It is Judas with guards and members of the Sanhedrin. Judas kisses Jesus on the cheek to identify him as the man they want.
8. A fight ensues with Peter cutting the ear of a guard.
9. Jesus tells them to stop and heals the ear.
10. Jesus' hands are bound and they take him away.

WEEK OF APRIL 6TH
HOLY WEEK: Yesterday was Palm Sunday. Review/Recall the things that we discussed about Palm Sunday such as:
Ancient Jewish tradition of Passover
Palm leaves representing Victory in the Roman Empire
The donkey representing humbleness or humility
Thus far we have discussed Palm Sunday, the week spent in Jerusalem and Bethany, Holy Thursday and the Last Supper,
the events at the top of Mount Olives in the Garden of Gethsemane.
We now get to the part where Jesus is lead away from the Garden and walked to the meeting place with Caiaphas and his father-in-law Annas. Caiaphas wants Jesus to admit something. By doing so, Jesus will seal his fate and the Sanhedrin will have the authority they need to send Jesus to Pontious Pilate. What is it that Caiaphas and Annas want Jesus to admit?
As Jesus is escorted away, he sees Peter lurking and trying to follow. What does Peter do 3 times in a row? What is the signal that crushes Peter because he realizes the statement Jesus made in the Garden just hours before has now come to fruition?
Please watch the short video below...
DO YOU REMEMBER the Holy Week Exam we did together in the gym (boys were on one end, girls on the other)?
We started to correct it and fill it in during class times. As you watch the videos, please look at that exam and continue to fill it in as we progress. If you lost that sheet, no worries. I'll be posting similar questions and/or the exact questions here.
Example, Question #20 on the Quiz:
Jesus is taken to the leader of the Jewish group who wanted him arrested. What's this leaders name?

Peruse the text and see if you can remember the order of events that take place from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. This will be a good review which we would have done in class had we been together this week. We'll continue with Chapter 11 next week
Good Day CCCS Community,
The PE Program at CCCS has a goal of teaching 100 things over a 9 year span. I have three levels of content: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Primary students participate in a variety of games and activities. 3rd-5th begin sports and build on fundamentals as well as playing a variety of fun games. 6th -8th will play a different sport each month and we'll play a few fun games as well for variety.
Classes meet twice per week for 30-35 minutes for the elementary and 40 minutes for the Middle School. We have a variety of tests throughout the year, some required, most voluntary. Highlights of the year include a variety of Dodgeball Games, a new sport each month, and the The CC 500.
Athletic Shoes & some form of CCCS T-shirt for Middle School. No tights this year in PE, (male or female) unless under shorts.
