Recreational and Leisure Opportunities Assignment
Increasing physical activity and the enjoyment of nature are major goals of our physical education department. We believe that we are fortunate to live and work inLivingston; there are so many wonderful programs, parks and opportunities. To this end we hope that this assignment will increase the awareness of you our students (and your families), to what is available in the town or surrounding area. When people know about services and opportunities they are more apt to take advantage of them.
Research the recreational and leisure activities available in the municipality and surrounding area ofLivingston,New Jersey. A wealth of information can be found at the municipal website www.livingstonnj.org or thecountyofEssexwebsite www.essex-countynj.org/p/index.php . Other service providers such as the West Essex YMCA are also an option.
You will create a power point project describing the recreational and leisure activity, course, opportunity, service or facility including all pertinent information that a person might need to decide whether they would want to participate or visit the location. Example would be the “municipal pools”. “What services do they provide?” “What are their hours?” “What information is there about staff?”
You will list and provide the links to your R and L activity that show evidence of your research and source of information used as the last slide of the powerpoint.
Provide a reporter style narrative essay about the service, activity or facility. Create a persuasive review that will entice readers to participate and include the health benefits associated with the chosen topic.
List and describe an area of need or a facility that they would like to see developed in the area as a recreational and leisure activity. Why is it needed? It must be healthful, safe and legal. Title this part of your assignment: "Livingston Needs a "? Example would be “Livingston needs designated bike lanes” (fill in the question mark with your response to the above need question).
