"Tell me and I forget; teach me and I may remember; involve me and I will learn”

Too many teachers neglect the cool-down at the end of a session. But it is an important step in aiding recovery. The cool down should occur immediately after main activities and should last 5 to10 minutes.
The cool-down can be the same sort of exercise as the warm-up but with low intensity body movement or some kind of games. Stretching after activity helps to ensure maximum flexibility, relax the muscles, return them to their resting length and helps develop long-term attitudes to maintaining healthy lifestyles.
