Move Think Learn – Teaching Games for Understanding

This resource uses a Teaching Games for Understanding approach to work students through tactical gameplay problems, think through options and skills, and learn how to apply this learning to broader gameplay situations. The series explores archery, badminton, canoe-kayak, cycling, ringette, softball, squash, soccer and team handball. Targeted to educators working with children and youth approximately 8-14 years of age (grades 4-9), the goal of the series is to increase student knowledge, confidence, and competence to become further engaged in physical activity and/or sport.

A Special Edition of the Move Think Learn – Soccer In Focus resource was developed with Canada's hosting of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014, and the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™ .

The resource, for grades 4 to 6 and 7 to 9, includes supplemental cross-curricular classroom lessons highlighting unique aspects of both competitions as well as a variety of Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) activity ideas to get your students engaged, moving, and learning the tactics and skills needed to participate in soccer.
