    2. Sequentially ordered so that if you followed this curriculum from K-12 grades, the students would not get bored with the same activities all the time and something different would be offered at each of the different levels. For example:
    • Elementary   bricks, large ball activities, rhythm activities
    • Middle School   kayaking; reaction balls; disc golf; step aerobics, hand weights
    • High School   group initiatives, orienteering, design workouts, learn all duties of being part of sports (officiating, keeping score, play, coach)
