Week 8 Outdoor Pursuits 110

Posted: May 25, 2020

This week you will be learning about canoeing techniques.  It is unfortunate that we are unable to be on the water as skills are easier to learn when you are practicing them from a canoe.  However, the videos presented in this lesson will allow you to see the skill and apply it when you are in a canoe.  You will be exposed to the terminology used with paddling along with necessary safety skills. 

NOTE:  Click on the globe in each slide to view the video.  I have also attached some notes.

ASSIGNMENT - After going through the lesson and watching the videos, answer each of the following…

1)      What are the 3 Golden Rules of Canoeing?

2)      What is the back of the canoe called?

3)      What are the 2 braces in a canoe called?

4)      What is the section of paddle that goes in the water called?

5)      Name 8 paddling strokes that were demonstrated?

6)      List strategies for safely launching and landing a canoe.

7)      Explain what you should do if you flip a canoe.

8)      Discuss how you would re-enter a canoe after flipping.
