Modern Rhythmic Gymnastics. A Supplement to the K-12 Physical Education Curriculum Guide. Curriculum Support Series.
Willoughby, Heather; Plumton, Diane
This resource package has been designed to assist the instructor in using modern rhythmic gymnastics (MRG) to support the objectives cited in the "K-12 Physical Education Curriculum Guide," developed by the Manitoba Department of Education. MRG is based on scientific principles of movement, and makes use of small, hand-held apparatus such as balls, hoops, ropes, ribbons, clubs, and scarves, to provide flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, coordination, and rhythm in creative activities. Contents proceed from basic exploratory movements through more defined skill development and appreciation to complete MRG routines, for kindergarten through twelfth grade. Teaching guidelines, a sample lesson plan, glossary, and a bibliography are also included. (JD)
