3rd Grade Bike Rodeo

Each fall, our USD 231 hosts the 3rd Grade Bike Rodeo. Students are given a free helmet, sponsored by Head Strong for Jake. The students love to get this helmet all to themselves! Each 3rd graders can bring a bike or scooter to the event, if they do not have either, we let them share with a friend.
Students went through 8 stations and end the day with a sack lunch with the entire district's 3rd Grade class. They loved it!

Safety Vehicles: We toured fire and police vehicles along with hearing from their emergency officers.

Figure 8's:  Students practiced their turns figure 8's.

Ride a Straight Line: Students ride through this station, with their wheels staying as close to the line as possible. They loved this station as they could get going as FAST as they wanted!

Hand Signals: Students learned Left Turn, Right Turn, & Stop signals. They practiced as they moved through an obstacle course with stops and turns.

Over The Shoulder: Students practice looking over their shoulder as they move on their wheels. There was a picture they called out, then numbers.
Safety Break: Students see what the EMS Bike team does and to see one of their bikes.
Obstacle Course: Students move through cones along a painted line. This was a challenge to do well on their wheels.

 Here's our 3rd Grade team: Mallory, Malinda, Jen, Erin, & Elizabeth
