It arrived yesterday and I am so thrilled with it! Almost every page of the book has an activity. They are grouped by the sport that inspired them. And while you can't play a proper game of soccer with only three people, the activities in the book will allow me to start teaching them soccer skills and basic rules for the game, and if they are interested and want to join a team, they won't be playing catch-up. There are sections for all the major sports played in the US, as well as modified playground games (like ones based on tag and four-square). The sections set up to teach based on actual sports are laid out like simple lesson plans with the purpose of the activity, materials needed, number of players, and set-up followed by the how-to directions. The sections on playground games have several activities per page and give a good explanation on how to play.
This is not a book to use to teach the effects of and reasons for exercise. If you are looking for worksheets for your kids to fill in about calorie expenditure and major muscle groups, this is not the book. Those books are out there in one form or another, but as far as I can tell, there are no books full of activities for small groups that actually teach sports skills. I'm very, very pleased with this purchase and am spreading the word about it to my fellow homeschoolers.
