"Swimming: learning the main strokes" Unidad Didáctica bilingüe

La Unidad Didáctica que a continuación voy a presentar está formulada y planificada para 2º de bachillerato, incluida en la programación de la asignatura "Ciencias para la Actividad Física", la cuál se imparte dentro del programa bilingüe de mi centro, el IES Saavedra Fajardo (Murcia - España).

Dentro de dos cursos (en el curso 2016-2017), tal y como la LOMCE indica, no se podrá hacer realidad para 2º de bachillerato puesto que la optativa que cubre la educación del cuerpo y el movimiento no se podrá cursar, sin embargo considero que podría tener cabida en la programación de 1º de bachillerato.

Learning to swim is a life skill that can come in very useful throughout one’s life. Swimming is not only a great way to keep fit, it is also a requirement for various professions (i.e. the emergency services). Along with being a life saving skill swimming can make a whole range of water sports accessible, such as surfing, kayaking or water polo.

Learning to swim is also an important preventative measure towards accidental drowning. Drowning is one of the highest causes of accidental death in children worldwide. If children are taught the skills that will ensure their safety in and around the water, we can greatly reduce the likelihood of these accidents.

The 3 most popular swimming strokes are Front Crawl, Breast Stroke and Back Stroke. When learning to swim it is important to practice as often as possible. This will build up your confidence in the water. Learning to swim can become fun by participating in swimming lessons, it is also much easier to learn with the aid of a qualified instructor. Swimming lessons are available in most communities through private gymnasiums and programs such as the Cruz Roja Española, Federación de Natación de la Región de Murcia, public schools, and sports clubs.
