Summary
    Used in conjunction with the main textbook, the Activity Manual for Introduction to Kinesiology: The Science of Human Physical Activity provides outstanding, accessible, hands-on application of the concepts of kinesiology.

    Teaching kinesiology courses can be challenging given the scope of material across all the sub-fields. Additionally, there is often a lack of resources to provide expensive laboratory equipment for introductory classes. This manual provides instructors with laboratory experiences that involve all the students in the introductory class, as well as activities for individual students in programs that do not offer lab sections. The labs and activities in the manual require minimal and inexpensive equipment.

    Many important features of the manual serve to enhance the textbook:

    • Activities are provided for each chapter
    • One or more labs are provided for each chapter
    • All activities and labs have a clearly stated purpose, an introduction, methods/materials, results and discussion questions, and reference sections
    • All activities and labs have relevant graphics, charts or tables to support learning
    • Discussion questions stimulate critical thinking and encourage further research
    • Many of the activities and labs use a cross-disciplinary approach to aid understanding of the material

    The extensive range of activities in this manual makes it possible for professors to easily provide numerous opportunities for meaningful application of the study of kinesiology.
