Introduction

This book, one of The Curriculum in Action series, supports the implementation of Health and Physical Education in the New Zealand Curriculum (1999) by providing teachers with ideas for planning units of work to meet the identified learning needs of students. This book should be used in conjunction with an appropriate instruction manual for the teaching of swimming. Although the learning experiences present a teaching sequence, teachers are not expected to implement all the suggested activities or necessarily to follow the sequence suggested. To meet the learning needs of their students, teachers may use all or parts of this book over a two or three year cycle and may also select from activities designed for other year levels.
