Become a super hero in your students' eyes, as you prepare them for a lifetime of physical activity! Flash Fitness & the Incredible Physical Activities
offers more than 110 activities and 15 sample lesson plans—all reflecting a super-hero theme and all grounded in the National Standards for Physical Education—for K-5 physical education classes.
Each chapter offers activities for a different skill:
- Throwing & catching
Imagine the fun you and your students will have while you guide them through Obstacle Mania (locomotors), Rubber Band Mountain (throwing & catching), Dribble Duel (striking), Good Morning Dance (rhythms) and Dinosaur Golf (manipulatives) ... all with step-by-step instructions that identify the skills taught, the equipment you'll need, the activity's intended outcome ... and the National Standard reinforced.
Each activity comes with a lesson extension emphasizing National Standards 5 and 6, which can be difficult to work into activities. And a final chapter offers sample lesson plans for implementing the activities.
