OH THE PLACES WE'VE GONE
Check out the Latest BCCP Field Trips
Anna Scott, our Multimedia teaching artist at the Explore Exceed site took the students to the Book of HOV exhibit located at Brooklyn Public Library.
The Book of HOV, is an exhibition chronicling the incredible journey and impact of the iconic Shawn Carter, universally known as JAY-Z. This exhibit, presented in chapters akin to a book, celebrates the phenomenal story of a man who turned adversities into stepping stones.
At the beginning of the Semester, students began exploring topics of multimedia by experimenting with digital cameras. During this field trip, students practiced using their cameras by taking photos of sites and one another.
5 Tips from Fitness Coach Jay
Sports are in session and we want to see you at your best. Read along for tips to keep you at the top of your game this season.
1. Remember to always stretch before taking part in any physical activity. Stretching helps to prevent injuries and loosen up your muscles for better physical performance.
2. Understand your body. There’s a difference between pushing yourself and overworking your body. Know your limits and slowly create new ones.
3. Always stay hydrated. Avoid soda or juice when participating in any physical activities as some of these drinks could cause further dehydration.
4. Show great sportsmanship. When competing against your peers, don’t do anything as a winner that you wouldn’t want to be done to you as a loser. Winning and losing is a part of sports; both are great lessons.
5: Lastly, get enough rest. The body will not be able to perform at peak ability if you are not getting the proper amount of sleep. Try heading to bed early the night before!
We want to see you in action! Tag @welcometobccp on game day so we can cheer you on!
