Summary

Written specifically for the elementary classroom teacher (not for the physical educator), this practical guide is designed to inform future elementary classroom teachers, as movement educators, about the discipline of physical education and the role they can play in producing physically active and healthy children. The text covers the variety of situations in which elementary classroom teachers may find themselves involved in physical education, from supporting a physical education teacher to managing a physical education program on their own. It provides a strong introduction to fundamental physical education concepts, as well as hundreds of sample activities and lessons.
