Starting February 18th a new Olympic sport will be televised ... Big Air Snowboarding. Some of your students may be officianados of snowboarding. Using this activity could be an opportunity to let those students shine.
We look at the orientation of regular and goofy snowboarders and how their tricks are described in rotation direction and degrees. We think your students will love this!
