Feedback form is now closed.
This session will dive into the usefulness of two free resources. The first is a Physical Literacy Observational Tool (PLOT) which is an easily accessible assessment for teachers to guide their teaching throughout the year. The second, Active Play and Physical Literacy Everyday (APPLE Seeds Program), is a series of high quality physical literacy lessons that can be used to boost your class' skill set and help boost their fundamental movement skills.

Actively participating in this session is optional.
