Everybody Move!: A Multimedia Package for Daily Physical Activity, Second Edition, features a teacher guide with fitness activities, music activities, and line dance descriptions; a music CD; and a DVD-ROM with dance video clips and breakdowns of routines. With this resource, you can get your students moving and having fun, regardless of your expertise or your limitations on space or equipment.
We all know that students are more sedentary than ever—their idea of moving might involve going from the couch to the refrigerator and back. Part of the reason students aren’t active enough is that they don’t see activity as fun.
With this new edition of Everybody Move!: A Multimedia Package for Daily Physical Activity, they’ll have loads of fun being active. This resource is packed with teacher-tested ideas that will help you increase activity in limited space such as hallways, classrooms, and utility rooms (or in the expanse of the great outdoors) and get your students active with limited equipment.
Everybody Move! includes the following features:
A teacher guide featuring 54 fun fitness activities, 32 moving-to-music activities, 14 choreographed line dances, tips on training leaders, and 9 keys to implementing a daily physical activity program
A CD with 80 minutes of music for use with fitness station activities, aerobics, and 3- to 10-minute dance routines
A DVD-ROM with over 90 minutes of video showing 14 dance routines with selected moves and breakdowns of routines
In addition, the DVD-ROM offers more than 230 reproducible activity cards in PDF format, which you can print and use in your classroom. On the DVD-ROM, you’ll also find demonstrations of over 100 funky moves that you can put to any music to create your own activity routine, breakdowns of dance moves, and complete dances that you can follow. A teacher quickly demonstrates the key dance steps, allowing students to choreograph each dance and assume leadership roles.
Research has proven that short activity breaks can improve academic performance. The ideas in Everybody Move! Second Edition can be used as fitness breaks taken throughout the day. You don’t have to be a movement or dance expert to use this turnkey resource—it’s designed to help you begin a program of daily physical activity breaks, regardless of your experience, existing space, or available equipment.
Everybody Move! Second Edition is a comprehensive multimedia resource package filled with great ideas for getting groups moving and having fun. Through it, you can promote daily physical activity and make a positive difference in the lives of your students. This is one resource that lives up to its name: It will help everybody move!
