2nd Grade Physical Education
Physical Education 2 provides students with a comprehensive physical education course. Within this course, students are encouraged to discover the ways to live a healthy lifestyle, including better food choices and consistent activity. Students begin the course by learning about the required 36 hours of organized, supervised physical activity. They also learn to document their activity within a PE Log. The course then moves into different aspects of healthy living, discussing components of health and safety, nutrition, working with others, following directions, and a number of new and different exercises, activities, and techniques. Regardless of the activity the student is asked to do within a given day, they are encouraged to get up and move for a certain amount of time within each lesson. This expectation helps them to create a routine-like schedule. Students can be active by performing different exercises, engaging in different activities, or by using items from their grade-appropriate physical education kits, which are available to purchase. This kit, which is designed to work in conjunction with the course content, contains age-appropriate exercise and activity items. Adaptive physical education activities are available for this course.
