Joy of moving. MindMovers&ImaginAction


The games collected in this part make up the application section of the handbook, “Joy of Moving – MindMovers and ImaginAction. Playing with variability to promote motor, cognitive and citizen development” by Caterina Pesce, Rosalba Marchetti, Anna Motta and Mario Bellucci, published in 2015 and subsequently updated and integrated in 2023.

All 70 games and their several variations to educate through movement are cataloged on the basis of the specific characterizing element of 1 single pillar, however, it is important to remember that they possess characteristics that synergically touch all the 4 domains on which the Joy of moving educational method lies.

The video tutorials of the games show 'real' children from 'real' classes engaged in the activities; in order to offer a didactically effective representation, we decided to provide a real context, not a controlled or manipulated one for the sake of filming. This was to measure the actual feasibility of the games, with children of all ages and backgrounds.
