Product Description:

When our kids aren't involved in business or household duties, they tend to jump on the trampoline, hike, bike, swim, or play baseball or volleyball. So we did not see the need to offer a book on physical education. However, not all children are so inclined. With childhood obesity on the rise, physical fitness is becoming increasingly important in the schools. As of 2005, 48 states now have physical education requirements which need to be met for graduation. If P.E. needs more attention in your home, don't panic. Dr. Bruce Whitney (also a homeschool dad) has all the planning and instruction right here in this recently updated guide that's easy to read and use. In seven chapters, he offers a "quick start" with weekly lesson plans; ideas for motivating your family; information and instruction on building muscle strength, endurance and flexibility; information and instruction on aerobic fitness, instruction for games like Capture the Flag, Around the World Table Tennis and snow soccer; fitness tests with scoring charts; lesson plans to help build specific skills and even rules and teaching labs for sports. From specific exercises to strengthen your ankles to how to play softball, it's all here. Just think of this book as your family physical fitness trainer.Get moving! 166 pgs, pb.

I have a small Christian school, and as I will be the P.E. teacher, I need some help. I reviewed all of the books, and this one seems like the best option for a multilevel group.

This was a bargain deal and since it was part of an elective A on Sonlight, I thought I might get it at a great price and see how helpful it is.

Did not like this
I have been homeschooling for over 15 years now, and have tried various p.e. programs. My daughter was needing a high school p.e. course and I thought this would take care of our needs, however when I got into the book and actually started trying to use it the activities were more for a group setting. While the author says that you can do these activities with your child if you have only one, at almost 50 and very much out of shape and never much of an exercise person myself, I am not willing to attempt 30 min a day of these activities. The one thing I did like about this book however was the fact that it discussed the muscles and bones of the body and how they worked together, however I would not have bought this book specifically for that. Unless you are physically active already and/or have several children you are using this with at the same time I would not recommend this book.
