Dimensions: 9 × 6 × 1 in
Binding Type: Paperback
Group Games and Activity Leadership has been compiled over the years with an awareness for the need of a comprehensive reference for group games.
The 500-plus activities in the book are intended to be used as a reference or a guide in the planning of larger group activities.
Central themes have been established as foundations upon which leaders can build more elaborately either by adapting the given suggestions or branching off to make up a new activity.
Some of the activities are new. Others may have been played in neighborhoods and playgrounds when we were children or in parks by our parents and grandparents.
Some activities may sound familiar, but have different names from what you remember. Few of these activities have established rules or strategies that must be followed.
To the leaders of these activities: be flexible, and if necessary adapt the rules, conditions, and strategies of the given activities to meet the needs of your group.
This book was designed to recall to the leader’s mind familiar and not forgotten activities. The book acts as a guide in which the old and new in group games can be easily understood and adapted for use in a variety of social and recreational settings.
