Welcome to weissice.com, an educator's source for physical education games.
My name is Howie Weiss. I am dedicated to promoting best practices in physical education. I believe that all physical education lessons should start with fun, include fitness and social education and help instill a love for life long movement. It is my hope that you will find this web site an outstanding resource for your physical education program.
I love to create games for physical educators. I have been inventing exciting educational games for the past 30 years. I will be sharing my expertise on my web site and in my book: Fun, Fitness, and Skills - The Powerful Original Games Approach." You can find my book on the Human Kinetics Web Site.

Update: Now four sample games. I hope you try these games and let me know what you think. Please e-mail me at email@example.com I am thinking of writing another games book. My idea is standard based games with an educational purpose that are quick to learn, easy to play, and of course fun. Each game will have only four instructions, making them very simple and quick to learn. The games will also have variations so that different skills can be taught and different ages will benefit from them. I have included four examplesGreat Games in Four. I would really appreciate your feedback. You can e-mail me with any opinions or suggestions as your responses will help me sell the idea. Thank you very much.
