FRENCHTOWN - Frenchtown Elementary School Physical Education teacher Roberta Chapman is introducing her students to a new game.
The game is tchoukball and can be played by all students. Invented in the 1970s as a training tool for the Swiss handball team,
Tchoukball encourages its players to communicate with their team members.
The students all play at the same time, which Chapman says differs from other games where some kids are left waiting for a turn or sitting on the sidelines.
Chapman is this week’s One Class at a Time grant winner and is receiving a 250 check from KPAX and Republic Services.
The money will go toward the purchase of the equipment for the game, which Chapman believes her students will enjoy.
"It’s a game that is all inclusive, all abilities. The kids throw the handball off a rebound net. The goal is to throw the ball at the net, the other team cannot catch it before it hits the floor, so it’s just a great whole class activity, inside or outside," Chapman explained.
