Promoting Health-Related Fitness during Warm-Up Activities for Secondary Students
Johnson, Ingrid
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v22 n2 p18-24 Nov-Dec 2008
It is common to begin a physical education class by having students run laps. Many teachers find that doing the same running warm-up day after day leads to boredom and a lack of interest in their students. This article provides teachers with developmentally appropriate warm-up activities that will not only motivate students, but also keep them active and healthy. These activities also address three unique sets of standards: the National Association for Sport & Physical Education standards for physical education, the National Health education Standards, and the National Standards for Dance education. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
