Classroom Ideas

This could be used as part of an activity where the children identify and discuss the pushes and pulls within the clip. Screen prints could be taken or children could draw their own rodeo shows and highlight the pushes and pulls. This could lead on to other sports and the pushes and pulls involved, like the Olympics or topical sports events.
