Introducing Navigation through Physical Literacy

From team sports to a friendly neighborhood game of tag,┬áthere are many benefits that come from kids playing outside. However, most parents will argue that the benefits that matter the most are the ones that affect their child’s physical and mental health.

It has been proven, going outside improves vision, promotes social skills, increases attention span, reduces stress and increases vitamin D levels. Why NOT go outside?

The Alberta Orienteering Association and the Be Fit For Life Network have partnered to create this new resource! There are 4 lesson plans included in this resource that are designed for use in a variety of settings, including school, recreation, sport and community programs. Each lesson is designed to be approximately 1 hour in length. Use these lessons as a guideline to support each activity, allowing for participant and instructor creativity.
