Chapter 8: Outdoor Activities & Playground
Outdoor activities expand the world for children and give them space for movement experiences. Preschoolers can use the outdoors to practice a variety of movements; they can coordinate body movements with visual information, and roll, throw, catch, strike, or kick a ball. Preschoolers can also dance, bike, jump rope, swim, run, or walk briskly. Being outside allows them to explore the world in which they live.
