Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
Recreational gymnastics skills for kindergarten through 12th grade students are identified in this guide. An introduction states the rationale for gymnastics, clarifies terms, and supplies equipment and professional development information. The gymnastics skills are broken down into three levels. Skills decribed in the first level include 19 static elements, 4 landings, 6 rotations, 1 swing, 3 springs, and 7 exercises involving jumping and height. Skills in level 2, recommended for the fourth grade and above, repeat many of the first level skills with more complex variations. Third level skills, which are mentioned briefly, involve more than one dominant movement pattern. The characteristics of each exercise are outlined, and teaching tips and spotting techniques are included. Appendices contain recommended readings, resources available for coaches in Winnipeg (Manitoba, Canada), and sample lesson plans for second and seventh grade students. (FG)
