Outdoor Fitness & Endurance
Students will participate in an outdoor Physical & Health Education lesson targeting fitness training and cardiovascular endurance. Through a dynamic group warm-up, strength-building exercises and structured run training, students will have the opportunity to challenge themselves with fun outdoor fitness. This lesson helps students to build a positive connection to life long health and wellness, through participation in physical activity and community-building tasks. Find any park, playground or green space to make it happen!
Date and time
The event will be located in Vancouver
There will be no fee for participants
There will be an educational component that invites participants to take something away that they can enact elsewhere (school, home, community-centre, etc.) and share their experience with others
Lessons will be offered by teachers/educators. They will be closed events that only the teacher and students participate in. Different classes many join up for a lesson, or even different schools and grade levels may collaborate for an outdoor lesson. Outdoor lessons are a chance to share what you are currently doing outdoors with other teachers/educators.
For lessons, WAV will share your outdoor teaching with other teachers/educators to help inspire them to take their teaching outdoors and offer some ideas about the range of learning that can happen outdoors.
