demonstrated risk-takingStudents in 6th, 8th and 9th grade practice safe climbing through a program called Adventure Ed in physical education classes.  This activity is excellent not only for fitness, but for building confidence, practicing teamwork and cooperation and communication. Climbers learn the proper terminology and techniques to support their experiences. For example, students learn to belay, which is done by the person who holds the ropes to arrest a fall should the climber slip.
