Students at Warren Street Elementary are enjoying the cardio drumming unit in physical education class right now. Students follow along to choreographed videos, with popular music to help them get into the groove and move to a beat.
Each student uses drumsticks on an exercise ball, that is stationed on top of a bucket. Home Depot graciously donated buckets to be used for the unit last year. Cardio drumming provides a fun way for students to get their heart rate up, improve coordination and ability to focus, while strengthening different muscle groups, including the core.
Check out video of our students drumming on the district’s Facebook page (listed as Greater Johnstown School District – NY) and Twitter account (@JohnstownSD).
