Description

85 Engaging Movement Activities is a great resource to get kids moving and engaged in interactive learning activities!

This book is an activity supplement to the "Teaching Movement and Dance"book (item #825653, available separately). The book is a rich source of ideas for challenging and enjoyable movement experiences. The experiences are planned around principal curriculum concepts in movement and music as well as in academic curriculum areas such as math and reading.

Each activity gives an easy-to-follow lesson plan with the suggested level (adaptable for many age groups), fundamental experiences in movement and music, curriculum concepts, materials needed including suggested music selections when applicable, steps for doing each part of the activity, questions for extending children's understanding, and extension ideas for creative variations. A fantastic resource for classroom teachers and specialty teachers in PE, music, and recreation. The included CD contains recordings that may be used with many of the activities in the book.
