Ultimate Homeschool Physical Educ Game Book
This book provides fun and easy-to-use games and activities that will give your children great exercise and instill in them a lifelong love of fitness. It contains games that do not require a gym, expensive equipment, or large play areas. Most can be played in a backyard setting. However, many of the basketball games require a hard surface for dribbling and games like handball and wall ball require bouncing balls off of a wall. The only equipment these games call for, besides a few racquets, nets, and hula-hoops, are different kinds of balls. Some of the games that require specific equipment give ideas for substitutions that can be made if the equipment is not available. Most of the games can be played with 2-4 people but can easily be adapted for larger groups. The skill-based games work on improving specific sport skills and also introduce activities children will enjoy doing independently. The book is organized into different sections, such as the different sports, playground games, rope jumping games, fitness building games, and more. Each game provides an introduction with a skill purpose, number of players required, suggested age level, equipment needed, black and white illustrations, and easy-to-understand instructions. In addition, teachers will find helpful advice on how to use the games most effectively in a homeschool setting, how to introduce games to children, finding the right game to achieve your learning objective, safety guidelines, and much more. The book is a great resource for fun and simple games that will prompt your children to enjoy physical activity and will develop their fitness, movement, and sport skills. ~ Rachel S.
