“TIME TO BRING IT”!!! The following 44 stations (and corresponding Station Cards) have been created as an aid for a PE Teacher, Classroom Teacher or Small Group Leader in a camp or church. The PE Fitness Stations can be set up quickly in designated zones of a gym, field or any other playing area around your facility. These particular stations were created to help develop the students’ personal fitness and include the following components of physical fitness: 1. Cardiovascular Endurance, 2. Flexibility (Static and Dynamic), 3. Locomotor Movement, and 4. Muscular Strength and Endurance.
All 44 of the activities are suitable for boys and girls and many of the stations require very little equipment and/or space. You can use them as a “warm up” for another skill or sport unit or use them as your base lesson(s) during a “personal fitness unit”. Since they require “maximum effort”, these stations should be shorter in duration than skill stations, probably around 30 seconds to 3 minutes. With 44 stations that span all components of physical fitness, you can “mix them up” throughout the school year or camp/church season and have more than enough activities to use for many classes or sessions. The cards provide brief directions with entertaining graphics. If you lack the equipment or space for one or more of the stations, feel free to adapt it in whatever way best meets the needs of your children and your unique situation.
