"Homemade" Equipment That Can Be Used In Teaching Physical Education Classes.
Davis, Kermit R.
This manual is designed to help elementary school teachers create games and equipment for use in physical education activities. It suggests items to acquire (cartons, string, plastic jugs, cardboard tubes) and places to look for them. It describes how such items can be used and how to construct some common gym class accessories. There are also ideas for nonstandard activities that utilize "found" objects such as paper plates, inner tubes, bushel baskets, and fixed horizontal poles in the school parking lot. Games and activities are described that utilize the homemade, classroom-constructed equipment. Diagrams and directions are given for constructing volleyball net and standards, stilts, parallel bars, ladders, badminton racquets, etc. There are suggestions for muscle building exercises and contests. The last ten pages are composed of detailed diagrams of constructed athletic equipment. (Author/JD)
