3rd Grade Physical Education
Physical Education 3 offers a comprehensive physical education course where students learn how to live a healthy lifestyle and are motivated to be active. Students begin by learning about the required 36 hours of organized, supervised physical activity required in the course and how to document their activity within a PE Log. After students learn the guidelines, they move into the course content, which covers topics ranging from safety, rules, and etiquette to various new, fun, and challenging activities and exercise techniques. Students learn the basic elements of each new activity, along with the proper way to execute the motions so that they can get the most benefits from the exercise. 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.
