The National After School Association and the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation have brought out some great free curriculum for Elementary aged students, the Enrichment Zone, to be used in conjunction with your existing sessions for After School or Summer Camp.
The Enrichment Zone was created to be used by afterschool professionals within their existing programs. The curriculum offers fun, playful, motivational, and age-appropriate activities designed specifically for grades pre-K to five. Although these activities are educational and nutrition- or fitness-oriented, they are more informal than a school-day lesson plan. Many encourage free-form outdoor play and teach fun games that incorporate physical activity and can be easily replicated at home.
The timing of this release is perfect for May being National Physical Activity and Sports month and in time to help prevent the Summer weight gain that now threatens our children as discussed in an earlier post Weighty Issues for Summer.
The lesson plans are detailed, informative, and easy to follow. They can be used as a full program, with forty-five-minute sessions a few times a week for six weeks, or by using the individual pieces of the curriculum that best fit the needs of youth. It’s intended to be flexible and customizable for afterschool programs of all kinds.
