Product Description

Get outside, get moving, and get fit! Homeschooling provides countless opportunities for fun, family-based learning, and physical fitness is no exception.

Homeschool Family Fitness provides a year's worth of fitness improvement for everyone in the family. Lessons cover: muscular strength/endurance/flexibility, aerobic fitness, fitness games with minimal equipment, fitness tests, sports labs, and lesson plans. Forty weeks of instruction are included so if the weather does not cooperate (such as no snow), you have enough activities to choose from for the 36-week school year. A weekly schedule is provided with activities' grade appropriateness noted, and alternate activities if there is a disparity in what students can perform. Junior and Senior High students can use this book like a textbook with labs; parents can use this book like a lesson plan for younger students of all ages. This plan takes approximately 40-60 minutes each week. Selected forms and tracking sheets may be reproduced for family use. 166 pages, softcover.

Everything a home schooling parent needs to educate their children and meet physical education requirements.

Physical fitness requirements are a part of the required curriculum for parents who want to teach their children in their homes, but it can be difficult to provide structured exercise plans.

■ Modified rules to make games suitable for one to four participants of mixed ages

■ Sections on strength, endurance, flexibility, and aerobic fitness
