Primary School Physical Education Through Movement Exploration. Practical Paper No. 26.
Gober, Billy; And Others
This program was designed to develop skills of movement which not only contribute to successful participation in games and sports but which are necessary in everyday life as well. The sequence of activities was planned: (1) to involve the child in a particular segment of movement; (2) to identify types of movement; and (3) to solve problems by using movement. Phrasing of these problems was done through verbal cues designed to motivate the child to find out more about himself. The guide contains 58 lessons each of which teaches a specific fundamental movement but which may also contribute to others. Reviews are not included, but are encouraged by the authors to follow completion of a skill series. Appendices discuss equipment, exploration materials, running activities, and suggested accompaniment music. (Author/CJ)
