Physical education and activity for elementary classroom teachers

Since many colleges and universities divide a physical education methods course for classroom teachers into separate lecture and laboratory sections, this text is divided into two primary sections. The first section is written to address topics that are covered during lectures in a university classroom. The second is written to address activities covered during laboratory experiences in a gymnasium. Each section contains relatively brief chapters that cover the most important points of the chapter's focus in easy-to-read text with numerous photos and interactive activities
