Games for Fun, Fitness and Learning
eBook (PDF), 179 Pages
This American edition is a reference book of 335 games for parents, teachers, home-schooling families, childcare workers, Cub Scout Leaders, Sunday School teachers, and anyone else who supervises or entertains groups of children. The book is divided into three main sections: physical and mental, life skill, and educational. The physical and mental games are for fun and fitness, and can be enjoyed at birthday parties, after school care centers, and vacation camps. The life skill games are especially designed for Cub Scout Leaders, and include such activities as map and compass reading, knotting, first aid, home safety, and outdoor cooking. The educational games include fun activities in math, English, science, history, geography, foreign languages, art and music. Teachers and home-schooling families will find this section instructive, stimulating and very unusual. The games are suitable for 7 to 17 year olds, and some of the activities will challenge even the cleverest teenagers.

Oct 13, 2011This book has a game for every occasion, from games for birthday parties and vacation camps to academic games for school classes. There are indoor games for rainy days, water and night time games, nature games, as well as games to encourage new hobbies and interests. Although aimed at children and teenagers, adults can have just as much fun playing these games as the younger players.
Jun 13, 2010I've just seen a copy of this book and plan to buy my own. I've never seen such a complete book of games as this one. It has everything from birthday party games for groups of children, and quiet indoor ones for the family, to games that teach useful skills like first aid, navigation, cooking and safety, as well as really fun games to bring academic subjects like math, history, science and grammar to life. The book recommends itself not only to parents and teachers, but also to Cub Scout Leaders and childcare workers. The games would suit a wide age group, starting with seven year olds, but going right up through the teenage years, and even to adults. There are even some biochemistry games to help high school students memorise the structures of organic molecules! A really fun book for anyone who loves games.
Oct 2, 2009"Games for Fun, Fitness and Learning" This book of games is like no other. It's got something for everyone from child to adult. I haven't seen a better book of games anywhere. The educational and life skill games are fantastic. The physical and mental games will definitely help to get you fit and exercise your brain cells. A great book.
Aug 18, 2009"Games for Fun, Fitness and Learning" As a school teacher and Cub Scout Leader, I find this book brilliant. The Cubs love the games, and I can control rowdy groups of students by giving them geography and history games that help them learn while they play. I've also checked out the chemistry games, and although I don't teach science, I'd definitely give these games a go on my students if I did. They are absolutely unique. This book is a must for anyone who enjoys games, and for teachers looking for something new.
