   Project Overview

The project we have chosen is to demonstrate the importance and unique characteristics of our school based Special Olympics program in the student development both social and recreational. The students will describe, prepare and present their views of their participation in Special Olympics. The project will entail descriptions of our physical education training programs as they pertain to the global, physical and social development of our students, pictures and news articles related to Special Olympics activities. Through this presentation we would invite other schools to participate and explore our program and our students would respond to any questions that may be presented. Students would be required to use the digital camera for photo portfolio and the downloading of pictures. Students will also be responsible for research on Special Olympics using the Internet and local information.
