Also, facilities that enhance the learning climate for outdoor and indoor programs are discussed, and lists of supplies for the different grade levels are provided. Suggestions are included for different types of learning aids. Part 4 includes sections on movement fundamentals, play activities, individual and partner activities, elementary gymnastics, track and field, swimming and diving, team sports, and dance activities.
