Playing for Life is based on the Game Sense approach, with the objective to develop in school-aged children a love of movement and physical activity that will encourage them to play for life. All activities are game-based and generate a safe, inclusive and challenging environment.
What's on the activity cards?
The Playing for Life activity cards have been developed with needs of teachers in mind and are aligned to Australian Curriculum outcomes. Each activity card provides the following information about the activity:
- Bands of learning (F-2, 3-4, 5-6)
- Content descriptions
- Physical literacy elements
- Learning intention
- Activity focus
- Equipment required
- What to do
- Tips to change the game (to make it easier or harder)
- Tips for safety
