Thursday, September 26 was the first annual trophy ceremony celebrating the culmination of Mr. Stoneberg's classes football unit. During the unit the class was broken into small teams of 4 or 5 students. These teams both practiced together and collaborated on a short quiz that focused route running, the line of scrimmage, turnovers, and the the general flow of the game (1st - 4th down & turnovers.) These teams played each other throughout the span for 4 days. Every day there were 2 rounds of play in which one team would be "sitting out" each round. When sitting out each student had a role to fulfill either as a game referee, score keeper, or sportsmanship referee. Throughout the season a Win/Loss/Tie record was recorded as well as the total points scored for each team and this was shared with the class on Google Drive. On the final day of game play the last place team was divided up among the other 4 teams still remaining. The top two teams went toe to toe in the "Championship Game" while the third and fourth place teams squared off in the "Bowl Game." The winners of each game were then awarded a traveling trophy for their team to keep! Both Mr. Stoneberg's 7th and 8th grade classes participated in this unit and both were awarded trophies - the following videos are from the 8th grade class!
