Move & Play through Traditional Games Lesson Plans

Created in partnership with the Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association

The Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association and the Be Fit For Life Network collaborated on this project to share traditional games with our partners in Alberta. The resources are designed to support the sharing of these games with children, youth, and families. The games in the resources link traditional culture and values to physical literacy and fundamental movement skills. Use these cards and lesson plans to communicate the history and culture of traditional games and note how the skills and values are still important today.
