OUTDOOR WORKSHOPS (to follow the feature presentation - MEET IN THE CAFETERIA- be prepared to participate outside, dress appropriately):

1) Build your Toolbox to support a fun, free and flexible club to get students active

This interactive session will feature activities and strategies to implement a run, walk or activity club at your school. The Alberta Medical Association and Ever Active Schools have partnered to support Alberta Schools through the Alberta Medical Association Youth Run Club: a fun, free and flexible club. Participants of this session will leave with the expertise to develop a new club or enhance an existing one with access to downloadable handbooks, practice plans and free swag. Come ready to move and have some fun!

2) Orange Marks the Spot: Lesson Plans to support Outdoor Adventure

Active play in nature and outdoors is essential for healthy child development. This interactive session will feature activities and strategies to develop competence, confidence and motivation to be active outside for life. The Alberta Orienteering Association and the Be Fit For Life Network have partnered to create Orange Marks the Spot: a series of lesson plans that are a fun way to introduce outdoor adventure skills to participants ages 5-12. Participants will leave with free downloadable lesson plans and strategies for use as a cross curricluar activity, in Physical Education, for large group activities, special event days, or a way to orient students to new spaces.

3) Ski, Skate and Slide: developing Physical Literacy in the Ice and Snow on Snowshoes or Cross-Country Skis

Ski, Skate and Slide is a new resource from Ever Active Schools to support Physical Education in winter environments. Using a Comprehensive School Health approach, teachers can be creative with in-place supervision strategies, physical environments and partnerships with service providers to ensure that students have quality time on snow and ice during and after formal lessons. Come with your cross-country skis or snowshoes, or just a good pair of boots to borrow a pair of snowshoes (limited availability) and try out activities that you can actively supervise in your school yard or on the local trails - please dress for the weather!
