This collection of ten daily physical activities that can be performed in the classroom provides a number of different opportunities for physical activity outside of the context of an actual sport through interesting and creative games.
The activities offer a way to motivate students to be physically active for at least half an hour a day, while offering friendly competition (if desired), interesting challenges and sometimes a broader awareness of popular culture, resulting in an attitude of eager anticipation for physical activity, not one of compulsion.
The activities come with game boards, complete suggestion lists, a list of standing training moves, and a list of various types of locomotion that can be used with the activities.
A great resource for use during days of inclement weather with no access to a gym or larger indoor space!
*It is also highly recommended that the teacher have ready round robin sheets so that teams play a variety of different opponents in shorter games, rather than attempting to draw the activity out for a longer period of time against a single opponent (the ones I made and use are available in the store, along with playoff draws).
Using this approach keeps the students' interest and activity level high, and facilitates an organized and efficient approach that keeps the activity focused, and the students disciplined and on task.
You will also need a Random Number Generator to select the question for some of the activities (a good one can be found at www.mathgoodies.com, or you can search other sites).
