Water Learning : Improving Mental, Physical, and Social Skills Through Water Activities – Susan J. Grosse

Water Learning : Improving Mental, Physical, and Social Skills Through Water Activities

As well as having fun, children involved in water learning also develop skills in cognition, perceptual-motor abilities, physical fitness and social interaction skills. Water learning activities are suitable for teaching. They can also be an integral part of physical, occupational, and/or recreation therapy. If a pool is available, swim instructors can integrate water learning with traditional aquatic programmes. Success is important in any learning process. Using a movement exploration format and a problem solving approach, success is built into these water learning activities. Easy to stage, practical and engaging, water learning can enhance the growth and development of all children. Readers will use this book to discover just how easy and rewarding water learning activities can be for any child.
