Glover not only includes a wide variety of activities, but presents the content in unique and proven ways. Activities feature specific questions you can ask to challenge students, such as, “I wonder how many of you think you can do a three-point balance?” These questions get students engaged and thinking creatively about how they can meet the challenge.

The book also features an activity finder to help you quickly find an activity that fits your lesson plan. If you're a new teacher, you'll find this book ideal for helping you build a foundation of activities to use in your class. If you're an experienced teacher, you can use 40 Years in the Gym to provide great new ideas that can replace activities that are “tired” or that don't seem to be working.
