Fitness in Disguise
Williams, Neil F.; Germain, Jenna
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v79 n7 p35-39, 56 Sep 2008
Physical fitness activities are often viewed as monotonous and tedious, so they fail to motivate students to become more physically active. This tedium could be relieved by using a "learning as play" strategy, widely used in other academic disciplines. This article describes how to incorporate fitness into a variety of games so that students do not even realize that they are participating in a fitness activity. (Contains 1 table.)
