Fifth- and sixth-grade students at Rhame Avenue received six weeks of physical education class lessons from Adelphi University graduate students.

The college students, along with their professor Dr. Sarah Doolittle and Rhame physical education teacher James Hickey, provided hands-on lessons for the elementary students.
   
The graduate students, who are in their final semester before they embark on a full semester of student teaching, worked together to plan a basketball unit. After each round of teaching the elementary students, they would reflect on how effective their lessons were and plan for the following week. They were also introduced to how East Rockaway has incorporated technology into physical education through pedometers, portable SmartBoards and iPads.
