Summary: Sport stacking has been adopted recently by many physical education programs to enhance rudimentary motor skills such as hand-eye coordination and ambidexterity as well as quickness and concentration; however, no empirical evidence has been published to support these claims.

Sport stacking is an activity taught in many physical education programs. The activity, although very popular, has been studied minimally, and the energy expenditure for sport stacking is unknown. Therefore, the purposes of this study were to determine the energy expenditure of sport stacking in elementary school children and to compare that value to the energy expenditures of other activities often included in physical education curricula.

Michelle Hancock doesn't need to read brain research books. She reads her children. One got in on the start of an experimental brain-building program in Owensboro, Ky., and one only experienced part of it.

Pete's project was titled, "Video Games: Friend or Foe?", and used four separate tests to determine the subjects' eye-hand coordination and attention/perception skills. It asked the question, "Did gamers have faster reaction times and therefore, do video games have the ability to help people?"

Gray Matters' brain-based learning - "Bringing the brain and education together", incorportates sport stacking in its Activities Cards deck. Speed Stacks are valued for its promotion of eye-hand coordination, ambidexterity, quickness, and concentration.

No Gym? No Problem!

Charmain Sutherland
For any physical education instructor whose lesson plans were thwarted by bad weather, lack of facilities or a scheduling conflict, there's a new book that capitalizes on limited-space activities. Just released No Gym? No Problem! includes nearly 100 "pilot-tested and engaging games and activities."

The National Association for Sport and Physical Education

The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) describes the physically educated person as one who is "fit, is physically active, is skilled, knows the benefits of physical activity, and values physical activity."
