K-6 Teachers can teach the program themselves by investing in these ready-made videos and teacher guide. It will no doubt save you time and energy in planning. The Plug & Play Program consists of 6 video lessons for K-2 AND 6 video lessons for Grades 3-6. It also includes a Guide for Teachers to follow along to, while leaving room for modifications and enhancements. Students enjoy the various activities while practicing their physical literacy skills. The program’s Legendary Characters; Apollo, Artemis, Athena, Hercules, Hermes and Zeus are a definite highlight for students and teachers love what they represent; Communication, Healing, Mindfulness, Wisdom, Strength, and Agility.
K-6 Teachers can acquire a trained Mini Legends Program Coach to teach in-depth lessons to their students. Coaches take each grade level through 1-5 developmentally appropriate and engaging lessons. Based on the tenets of developing physical literacy (running, jumping and throwing-type skills), the Mini Legends Program has shown to provide much more! Through our carefully designed lesson plans, this program nurtures a love of physical activity and also provides opportunities for students to gain and practice important life skills; cooperation, self-confidence, participation, and empathy.
The Mini Legends Games (not to be confused with the Olympic Games 🙂 ) is a fun-filled day for your students (or your entire school community) to demonstrate their learned physical literacy skills. These Games can be run by an Athletics Alberta Legendary Crew or by your own staff. The Mini Legends Games takes the look and feel of the more traditional ‘track and field’ day and transforms it into a station-centered, physical-literacy events day. As an added bonus, Zeus may make an appearance at your school’s Mini Legends Games!
