The Basic (K-5) framework introduces students to the five components of fitness and nutrition and reveals their connection to a fit and healthy life. As students move through the Basic Program, they are taught meaningful concepts which empower them to make healthy choices. The links between activity, exercise, fitness, health, and personal achievement are carefully woven together to provide all students with the opportunity for success. This activity-based program accomplishes learning goals using fun games and exciting activities that facilitate improvement in the five components of fitness and the opportunity to practice essential motor skills. The Five for Life® Basic Program includes a manual (over 300 pages, 17 instructional units) and resource CD (printable teaching materials).
