Bad weather, lack of facilities, and scheduling conflicts are among the everyday challenges for physical activity providers who are striving to develop consistent daily lesson plans or activities in often-cramped quarters. No Gym? No Problem! gives physical educators, recreation leaders, and classroom teachers the tools to deal with-and thrive despite-issues surrounding limited space.This resource contains nearly 100 activities that may be used individually to enhance existing curriculum or combined to create full-fledged lesson plans that meet specific skills, concepts, or fitness objectives. Whatever the purpose, these activities--overcome space limitations, giving children a safe environment in which to learn and grow;-use equipment effectively and efficiently in tight spaces; and-are specifically designed to minimize prep time and budget demands.Developed by an experienced physical educator and recreation specialist, No Gym?
