Hannah Chapman and Erik Hunt spent 3 ½ weeks in New Zealand with several other students and professors while working with students in exercise science. Hannah and Erik taught lessons at a primary and secondary school in Auckland. While in the Primary school, they taught a dance routine where the learning object was to identify body parts. At the Secondary level, they combined the concept of adding money with various aerobic exercises in a cross curriculum lesson. Erik, excelled in this mode of instruction and just received word that he has been selected to present at a physical education conference at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem, NC in November!
