    Essential Questions
    Performance Assessment
    Proper body alignment alignment: when attempting to balance, joints should be aligned straight above base of support, ie., shoulders over hands, hips over knees.
    Balance
    Base of support
    ...
    Partner balances
    Group balances/pyramids
    Notes for balance:
    Each part of the base of support receives weight.
    Muscle tension is firm.
    Center of gravity is aligned over base of support.
    Balance is gained with control.
    Free body parts (those not bearing any weight) can be placed for aesthetic value.

    Notes for Perceptual Motor Development: Perceptual motor develoment includes body image; body awareness; body coordination; body and space relationships; motor planning; spatial awareness (estimation) ; pattern recognition; directionality (recognition of directional relationships such as up, down, above, below, next to, etc.) ; perceiving accurately under stress; eye/hand and eye/foot coordination
    Focus, attention span, concentration, and perseverance are also Life Skills being worked on.

    Probably few people realize the important role perceptual motor development plays in every daily act we perform. We tend to take these complex abilities for granted and attribute them to luck or innate ability. Our world consists of movement and how to safely and productively move in relation to other things moving around us. The perceptual motor process involves perceiving through a sensory system, integrating and interpreting the perceived information, motor planning, responding, evaluating based on feedback, and storing. Perceptual motor development is based upon maturation and numerous rich environmental experiences. Because of the latter, it is possible to affect the degree of development and increase perceptual motor abilities to help prevent serious injuries and heigten the joys that accompany moving well and knowing where to go.
