On the Move: Lesson Plans to Accompany Children Moving, Eighth Edition
This text is designed to offer learning experiences for children that assist them in developing a broad base of movement skills coupled with an enjoyment of physical activity that will translate into a physically active, healthy lifestyle for a lifetime. Some of the highlights are (1) instructional objectives that are attainable within a single lesson; (2) content development with a focus on a skill rather than on broad exploration; (3) maximum practice of the focus skill; (4) concentration on one cue at a time; (5) challenges throughout the lessons; and (6) both cognitive and performance assessments. Special features include a series of physical fitness concept lesson plans; sample lessons for integrated discipline activities; and a separate section devoted to Children Moving challenges written for the classroom teacher and designed for the recess or playground environment, with a focus on physical activities with minimum instruction and maximum participation for all students. Also included is a discussion of curriculum mapping with a skill theme approach and a sample curriculum plan to assist teachers in the process of planning by mapping. New to the eighth edition: Tasks within the lesson plan book that are directly from Children Moving are highlighted by a different font to provide an easy reference to Children Moving and to show how a single task or series of tasks is developed into a lesson for children.
