Hi Girls,

On Monday, October 31st you will be required to complete the good copy of the mind map.  Details are below:

Use the template provided to demonstrate all of your knowledge of basketball using words and pictures.

There are 4 sub-topics that you need to address: passing, shooting, tactics, and rules.

You may also add more sub-topics if you desire, (team play, etc.).

You will be provided with art supplies but please feel free to bring in your own to add to your assignment.

This is your opportunity to show ALL you know about the skills involved in the sport and different game situations, so put forth your best efforts.

Assessment will be based on Criterion A: Use of Knowledge (maximum 8 points).

Students are expected to have a knowledge and understanding of the physical activities or topics studied. They are also expected to be able to use this knowledge and understanding critically, and apply it to analyze situations and solve problems.
