Play with a Purpose. Elementary School Physical Education. Second Edition.
Anderson, Marian H.; And Others
This book presents a planned program of physical education for children from kindergarten through the eighth grade. The material is designed to aid the teacher in planning balanced units of instruction to meet the needs of the pupils. Suggested Grade Placement Charts at the beginning of each new type of activity help to determine the activities most suitable for each grade level. The book is divided into three major categories. Part one contains activities based on movement skills such as balance, coordination, agility, flexibility, strength, and endurance. Section two deals with movement skills along with the additional skills of handling an object such as a beanbag, ball, bat, or racket. The final section parallels the development of the movement skills adding rhythm and music. Included in this section are folk dancing, circle mixers, and square dancing. (JD)
