Chapter 8: Outdoor Activities & Playground

    Outdoor ActivitiesOutdoor 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.
