Anyone who works with children ages 6 – 12 will be able to use this straightforward book as a guide for how much physical activity is appropriate for this age group. Detailed interpretation for each guideline makes the information easy to understand and apply to the reader’s situation. An extended rationale and an extensive list of resources used in developing the guidelines can provide backup material when using these guidelines to promote a physical activity program.
A Physical Activity Pyramid helps readers understand the four different levels of physical activity and the amount and types of activity children should be participating in. Finally, specific recommendations are given for how physical education teachers can help students meet these guidelines. This book was written for teachers, parents, youth physical activity leaders, administrators, health care professionals, and others working with children.
