44 of 45 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on February 24, 2001
Format: Paperback
The Ultimate Playground & Recess Game Book completely lives up to its title and offers classroom teachers, physical education instructors, playground supervisors, youth recreational leaders, and parents more than 170 fun-packed games, sports, and activities for recess and recreational time on the school yard playground, the community park, or the family back yard. Some of these games and sports learned in a school setting or a summer recreation program can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Some of these games will help to reduce student boredom at recess and thereby eliminate a major source of playground behavioral problems. Each game is fully described in a clear, concise, "user friendly" text which is enhanced with more than 150 illustrations to help visualize game directions and setup. An exceptionally useful "Activity Finder" chart makes it simple and quick to find games to meet the needs of the adult supervisors and the children. The Ultimate Playground & Recess Game Book is an indispensable and very welcome addition to any school, summer camp, or family activities reference shelf.

My husband and I are teaching P.E. classes this year for 4 year old preschool thru 8th graders. This book has been very helpful in setting up games for all these age groups. Lots of good ideas.

We were looking for activities when we are stuck indoors and this is great, especially for elementary students. Recommended by a gym teacher, I had to order one and it's in such good condition!
