Cardio Fitness ebook
Live a Healthier and Fitter Life Through Cardio Training
A know-all, short report on the foundations of cardio fitness.
Coaches of any sport, camp leaders, Physical Education Teachers and Health Teachers could use this ebook for students from grades 4 to 9 as a baseline for discussions. Share the book with your cooperative learning groups. Put students into groups, perhaps with two to five per group, and assign a chapter to each group. Every student could read the 20+ ebook, but the students in the group could present and expand upon their assigned chapter.
Have the small groups pick roles for themselves to include a group presenter, a graphic chart maker, an illustrator / photographer, a researcher to uncover citations, quiz maker, and whatever else you and they decide upon. Short skits could be performed by the various groups in the course of a few sessions.
Wrap up discussions could prove to be valuable for getting the students and athletes onto the same page with the teachers and coaches. Team quizzes, perhaps in a game-show format could make for interactive learning that stretch the scope of each chapter. Check for understanding following presentations.
Giving each group one section to present to the whole team, adding in illustrations and demonstrations, citing resources and wrap-up quiz could serve teams well for structured time out of pool and off the court or field. Adapt to a swimming environment, or else to your specific sports of choice.
