Fifth graders are learning to juggle as part of a circus skills unit.  In addition to scarf juggling, the students are working on plate spinning, devil sticks, diabolo (Chinese yo-yo) balance board, stilts, pogo sticks, and other fun activities.  The development of skill in any of these activities takes patience, perseverance, practice, and a willingness to offer and receive help from others.  These are qualities that will serve students well in their lives.  We are having a great deal of fun!
