Before the instant activity we had a quick quiz on what we have learned so far. On this day Regina and Amanda coordinated the instant activity. This instant activity involved getting into groups of four and five people and making formations with our bodies. Some people were part of the formations and the other people were spotters for safety. Everyone in my group was a guy probably at least 170 pounds or more so some of the formations were a little harder when we had to stand on each other. It was still fun though, we got a good laugh out of it. Then after completing three or four formations we brought all the groups in together in the center of the gymnasium. They split the class up into two groups and did a more complicated formation that involved more people. The people that weren't directly involved were spotters. After that the class was split up into groups of two people to demonstrate a certain aspect of the pedology. It was a great learning experience because we got direct feedback form Professor Yang and the teaching assistants. If we did something wrong then Professor Yang had us try it again. I liked how he had us demonstrate the skill until we did it right. After that the class went to the classroom and we talked about APEM and other things to come this semester. Then after class I did my intro lesson on the basketball layup because I didn't get to do it the last two classes.
