Grade 8: Blogging about our Enduring Understanding and Essential Questions for Team Andrew Gregg

Andrew Gregg

Team Handball is a  game played throughout all over the world. Each team consists of 6 or 7 players on the court. Object of the game is to score more goals than your opponents by throwing the ball into their netted goal. The basic skills that are in this game are running, jumping, catching and throwing. This sport is very similar to soccer because it has the same objective and that is to shoot the ball at the net. Basketball because you are aloud to bounce it and use your hands. And water polo because it  is the same thing but just in water. Collaboration is very important for this game because you can not be successful if their is only one person playing. You need to work together as a team by passing, communication, and defending together. Team Handball was very fun for me because I love games were there is teamwork. I really think I improved a lot throughout this quarter because before this activity started I barely have no idea how to play this sport but now I think I am very good. One question that still no one answered yet for me was why pass the for the goalies pit such a big deal. Even by accident would it still be counted as a foul? In the future I want to explore and learn about the history of this sport and who came up with this fascinating idea. I also want to start watching some professional games of Handball because I want to see what do the professionals do to play good during the game.
