Walking Games and Activities is the first book to combine the concepts of fitness and walking as a vehicle for games. It's a one-stop shop for teachers and activity leaders who want to teach walking in a fun way but aren't sure how to begin. This book provides 40 practical, easy-to-teach walking games and activities, including: learning activities that reinforce basic health, nutrition, and safety concepts; games that combine fitness and problem solving; games that emphasize cooperation; and highly aerobic games. The book reduces your preparation time by providing detailed instructions, teaching tips, pre-planned units, sample walking units, mini-lectures on topics such as walking form and nutrition, and tips for inclusion. For each activity the book presents everything you need to implement a successful game: objectives; safety tips; suggested grade levels; facility requirements; equipment needs; instructions for organizing the students; mini-lecture(s) that complement the game or activity; a step-by-step description of the playing area, rules and regulations, and scoring procedures; a worksheet with exercises for students to complete during or after the activity; and teaching tips and variations. The wide variety of games provides many ways to get students excited about walking. A game/activity finder at the front of the book makes it easy for teachers to find the right game for every situation. The games contain variations that teachers can use to fit different age categories, and the walking unit suggestions include guidelines for elementary, middle, high school, and college students.To ensure health, lose or gain no more than one pound per week.
