1. Editor's Note

This week's article additions included a game that will give your students lots of throwing practice; some tips for maintaining orientation on outdoor education hikes; and a system in which students record their own track interval times.

How about free stuff? This newsletter also provides links to free Olympic resources for teachers; some free Olympic contests for Canadian schools; and the throwing skills game mentioned above.

This newsletter is free, but most of the content on the website is for members-only, including instructional videos, the discussion group, almost 2000 articles that you can read, print and email... and much more.
