Games For Fun, Fitness And Learning – by Kathi Wyldeck
This American edition is a reference book of 335 games for parents, teachers, home-schooling families, childcare workers, Cub Scout Leaders, Sunday School teachers, and anyone else who supervises or entertains groups of children. The book is divided into three main sections: physical and mental, life skill, and educational. The physical and mental games are for fun and fitness, and can be enjoyed at birthday parties, after school care centers, and vacation camps. The life skill games are especially designed for Cub Scout Leaders, and include such activities as map and compass reading, knotting, first aid, home safety, and outdoor cooking. The educational games include fun activities in math, English, science, history, geography, foreign languages, art and music. Teachers and home-schooling families will find this section instructive, stimulating and very unusual. The games are suitable for 7 to 17 year olds, and some of the activities will challenge even the cleverest teenagers.
