​​Nature has the power to make children healthier, happier and smarter. But over the last few generations, childhood has moved indoors, leaving kids disconnected from the natural world. This worldwide trend has profound implications for children’s healthy development—and the future of our planet.

The plan for our school this year was to incorporate critical thinking and collaboration into creating an atmosphere where our students were more aware of their health and to be more physically active. We provided them with information and encouraged them to think critically and deeper as to why their health and physical fitness are so very important.
Students collaboratively worked in teams to make up their own games or to play games designated by the teacher.
We also incorporated daily Brain Gym activities into their fitness regime. We felt these exercises beneficial for students to do at the beginning of each day. These exercises integrate the brain and body and enhance learning ability and academic performance.
We also set up a fitness circuit. Students were tested three times during the year and were encouraged to improve their previous testing time

Dance Collaboration
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

In the dance craze research project for my Grade 7 Physical Education class there was a large component of collaboration. The students were put into small groups of either 3 or 4 and had to work together to complete the assignment. They needed to collaborate and make sure each individual was on board with the type of dance they were going to do and each do equal amount of work on the project. The collaboration was the largest part of this piece because of the amount to time students needed to discuss and work as a group to complete the assignment and present it to the class. They need some collaboration time outside of the class to practice in order to help teach their peers the steps to the dance as well. This group has a tough time with collaborating with one another, but this activity I would view as a success as most students and groups were able to work together and collectively to finish their project. Each group member completed a peer assessment on each group member to show if each member had done equal amount of work and was a contributing group member and helped the group succeed.

Designing a Game That Involved Offensive and Defensive Strategies
Conditions of Use:

My plan for my 21st century competency dealt with critical thinking and collaboration in
my Physical Education 9 class. The assignment I had students participate in was in designing a
game that involved offensive and defensive strategies. The students also had to brainstorm
game objectives, physical skills being used, teamwork skill, game rules, penalties, and scoring
system. Before we began developing our games, we looked at the evolution of sport. For
instance, we looked at how volleyball and badminton scoring systems have changes in the past
20 years. We also looked at sports like hockey and football and the rule changes from the early
days of the sport to what we see today. Finally, students developed a game and taught it to the
class. They thought about what worked well and what did not and adjusted their games
according to their findings.

This includes the film and lessons!

This film highlights the many ways in which engineers tackle problems big and small and explores how the principles of engineering can create a better future for all. Three female engineers are specifically profiled: one who specializes in creating structures that can better sustain earthquakes, one who designs and builds badly needed bridges in countries like Haiti and one who was inspired by her time in an after-school robotics club to pursue a career as an engineer.

First Nations, Métis and Inuit Curriculum Collection
Rating

The Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge in southern Alberta sponsored the development of this First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) Curriculum Collection (over 1100 items). It is a collection of lessons and resources designed to help pre and in-service teachers incorporate FNMI content in their teaching across subjects and grade levels. One can browse through the collection or search by categories (e.g. subject, title, key word, grade, etc.).

In order to fully understand how the collection works, it is strongly recommended that before exploring the collection, that you take 5 minutes and review the search tutorial (link available on the home page of the resource).

Fostering Independence in Phys. Ed Warm-ups
Conditions of Use:

In every PE curricular document there is an outcome that focuses on safety in the gym. When kids come into the gym at the beginning of class, they tend to think it should be “full-blast”. Especially in the younger grades, they need to be aware of the dangers of not warming up your muscles before taking on a vigorous locomotor task. In order to connect this to critical thinking and collaboration, my action plan consisted of the students becoming more independent by creating their own personal warm-up, and be accountable for the first 10 minutes of each PE class.

Gaming Concepts - A video gaming curriculum for schools
Rating

"Gaming Concepts was written as a turn-key curriculum that almost anyone with even rudimentary computer skills could teach. Mike, an experienced gamer; and Kristy, an experienced curriculum writer; make a unique and effective team as each draws on the strength of the other. While Mike provided the technical expertise, Kristy made sure that the gamer jargon was put into educationese for even the most inexperienced gaming teacher to understand. Together, they hope that Gaming Concepts will motivate other schools to take the leap into using video gaming as a powerful catalyst for learning."

The curriculum integrates gaming, health, movement, communication, media, self-management, goal setting and active participation.

Gr 7 and 8 Phys Ed Using QR Codes and Video
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

As I am far from an expert in track and field, I decided to use collaborative learning in my Phys Ed class to help students explore and apply correct techniques for various track and field events.  To do this, I used QR codes.  In preparation for this, I perused through YouTube to locate videos that were fairly short (under 5 minutes) and age appropriate so the students could easily understand and follow the video.  Once I found these videos, I used Google URL shortener extension on Chrome to create a unique QR code for each of the videos.  I found and created a video for javelin, sprinting, long jump, triple jump, discus, shot put, and high jump.  Our tablets at school have a QR scanner app and I also downloaded and installed a free app called Coach’s Eye which allows slo-motion video capture and playback.  My plan was for students to get in groups, scan a QR code, watch the video, and then practice the skill using Coach’s Eye as a learning tool.

Student collaborated together and discussed the idea of flashmobs – what they were, where they occur, why they occur, how they relate to pop culture. We utilized You Tube so that students could see these in action and garner ideas for their own which was the end goal.
