PHE Canada and the NBA have partnered to offer additional Move Think Learn activities. This enhanced Move Think Learn Basketball in Focus (grades 4-6 and 7-9) resource features the Jr. NBA Skill Practice Supplement highlighting the skill execution element of the Teaching Games for Understanding model. The supplement includes 5 NEW skill practice games that compliment the existing MOVE activities. This collection of 120 pages provides additional THINK questions for each activity, links to Jr. NBA skill videos, and offers various skill level options to tailor the activities to your students’ needs.
The Move Think Learn resource series has been designed to support physical educators in their planning of game-play experiences for children and youth. The series targets educators working with children and youth approximately 9–15 years of age (grades 4–9); its goal is to increase students’ knowledge, confidence, and competence so they become further engaged in physical activity and/or sport.
Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada) advocates for Quality Daily Physical Education (QDPE) in all Canadian schools. Well-planned opportunities to improve game-play abilities are part of a QDPE program. The Move Think Learn resource series promotes these opportunities through a Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) approach, contributes to the development of physical literacy, and aligns with Canada’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model.
Now students can MOVE, THINK, LEARN, and practice SKILL EXECUTION to increase their confidence and competence in becoming more skillful game players.
