[Physical Education in the Out of Doors].
Barnard, Peter; And Others
Designed for instruction of emotionally handicapped children and youth, these two articles deal with concepts and activities of physical and health education with an outdoor emphasis. Objectives cited in the first article are teaching young people to: enjoy the out-of-doors; cooperate with others and share in common goals; develop skills for coping with unplanned "happenings"; develop lifetime skills; incorporate strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, agility, coordination, physical fitness, and psychological and social security; experience challenges and successes; develop safety habits; and develop appreciation of the outdoors and its creatures. With emphasis on motivation techniques, the following warm and winter weather activities are suggested: walking; hiking; games; sports; bicycling; boating; canoeing; horseback riding; camping; swimming, fishing, following trail markers; snow showing and skiing; and sliding or tobogganing. Curriculum areas and some corresponding activities emphasized in the second article on health education are: pollution (site visits); physical education (mountain climbing and observation of pulse rate, fatigue, etc.); sex education; conservation; hygiene (local health clinics); nutrition (field trip to discover edible plants); safety education; drugs; communicable diseases; mental health; and overpopulation.
