Moving Learning Action Pack.
American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC.; McDonald's Corp., Oak Brook, IL.
One of five McDonald's Action Packs, this teacher's guide and activity sheets describe an early childhood-level program that introduces basic movement and guides students and teachers into the process of learning through moving. Basic movement skills necessary for sports and games, gymnastics, and dance are developed through eight themes, each containing enough material for several lessons. (Each theme may also be "revisited.") These themes are (1) moving in and through space, (2) moving in different directions and on different levels with emphasis on time aspects, (3) moving on different body parts, exploring body relationships and body actions, (4) creating different effort actions with emphasis on sequence and flow, (5) moving in and through space using different bases of support and different levels, (6) moving through space with different pathways with emphasis on range and focus, (7) moving in shapes with emphasis on action of body parts, and (8) manipulating an object in and through space. Each theme may include some or all of the following: objectives for students, objectives for teachers, suggested activities, related activities, and directions for use of activity sheets found at the end and suitable for reproduction. New words appear in bold type and are defined in an appended glossary. (YLB)
