We’ll admit that the term “physical literacy” is a bit of a mouthful. When we use the phrase with parents who’ve never heard it before, they tend to furrow their brows and cock their heads as they work out what it means.
It’s true that when we’ve explained what physical literacy is, each and every one of those parents has a lightbulb go off. We can see it as they raise their eyebrows in understanding, and say, “Oh, yeah, that makes sense.”
And now we can help that happen even easier with this simple infographic that lays out clearly just what goes into developing physical literacy.
Embedded in the infographic is an explanatory video, created by the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association (OPHEA), as well as links to the Active for Life resources and activities sections.
And you can download the infographic as a printable poster (in two sizes) to put on your fridge or give to your child’s teacher to hang in the classroom.
