Fun with Fitness

Physical education can be a useful interdisciplinary tool because it can provide an important boost to academics.  Many of the skills students learn during physical education activities directly correlate with skills needed for success in the classroom.

Students learn to cooperate with each other as they participate, develop a strong sense of team spirit, and strengthen communication skills.  Students learn how to lead, listen to directions, and encourage one another.  Students will develop physical coordination, practice working in larger groups, meet challenges, and experience friendly competition.

Content will include:

  • Warmup and stretching exercises
  • Team Games
  • Cooperative Games
  • Relays
  • Individual Fitness Activities
  • Playground Games
  • Parachute Activities

Class will take place in the gym, or outside when weather permitting.  Students should dress appropriately as we will always try to get outdoors for a little while, even on cold days.  Proper footwear is a must.

Fun with Fitness is a 30-week course, meeting for 90 minutes a week. Come join us and improve your confidence and ability to have fun with fitness.
