Schools & Teachers
Looking for something to help you get your kids active? Perhaps a warm up activity before a physical education lesson, or just to re-energise them in class? Maybe you’re looking for something your children can do as a performance; working in a team; being creative and problem solving? LaunchPad is the fundamental movement program for you!
LaunchPad Gymnastics Fact Sheet for Teachers
We'd like to make things as easy as possible for teachers to incorporate movement into their classroom teaching. LaunchPad can be delivered in schools by teachers!
LaunchPad offers easy to follow, sequential Lesson Plans aimed to reach curriculum objectives in Health and Physical Education. Alternatively, teachers can mix and match activities from the Lesson Plans using the knowledge gained in their LaunchPad: Ignite! workshop. Gymnastics Australia also have a range of supplementary resources that can give further ideas and options to help with planning. Take a look at what's available here .
GymMix Online Lesson Planner is an online resource enabling LaunchPad certified teachers and coaches to create and save their own lesson plans with a convenient Lesson Plan Builder. Participants who complete the LaunchPad: Ignite! workshop gain access to this resource for a 12 month timeframe with the option to continue their involvement with LaunchPad afterwards.
