Swimming Lesson Ideas: For Water Wings - The First Shall Be Last

Swimming Lesson Ideas: For Water Wings

Here is one of my swimming lesson ideas to do with water wings. It occurred to me the other day that I may do something a little bit different from other swimming teachers.

A Child With Water Wings

For example: if your students were in the water with you and the water was over their heads and you wanted to put water wings on for some activity, who would you put the water wings on first?

Would you put them on the weakest student first to keep them safe?

You see I found that most teachers do put the water wings on the weakest student first because logically they are the one who needs the most looking out for. But are they?

The First Shall Be Last

In fact, in my experience, the ones most likely to do something silly and put themselves in danger are the students that are that little bit more confident. Just because they think they are safer than they really are. So I would put the water wings (floaties) on the most confident student first.

Let's face it the students who are scared are usually going to hang on for dear life.
