If Bluearth is part of your school’s curriculum, you will be familiar with the activities and postures that represent a broad cross-section of the key elements of our Active Schools Program. These are;
- Dynamic Movement
- Moving in environment
Each activity on this site comes with diagrams and information to help you choose the best activity for the learning intention you have for your class. Providing the opportunity to give and receive feedback is an important part of any Bluearth session. Encouraging your students to review their participation and notice what happened for them is where significant learning can take place.
Please use the filter to select appropriate activities based on the skill set your are hoping to include or use in your school/class plan.
5. The Term 3 Bluearth Lesson
For contracted Bluearth Active Schools only
Our coaches while disappointed they cannot give face to face sessions are very excited about the online presence we are creating. It represents a new chapter of investment for us into our youth and we can’t wait to pass it on to schools.
Bluearth has never been more critical in reaching out to every child’s innate desire and need to move.
