Adventure experience in the school grounds


This book, one of the series The Curriculum in Action, 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. 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.
