Artifact: Motor Development Lab Skill Assessment 

Reflection: During the spring semsester of 2010, in my motor development class I was given the opportunity to work with children and assess their motor skills as they attempted to complete a number of movements. During my fourth lab I observed and assessed as the children of St. Mary's as they attempted the skills of the overhand throw and catch. I was lucky enough to have this experience as these skills will be critical in my future of physical education.  It will be important to have these skills to give feedback to my students.
