LE Physical Education

Lower Elementary students receive a basic introduction to the components of health-related fitness.

Lower Elementary students practice basic locomotor and non-locomotor skills, such as walking, running, hopping, skipping, jumping, galloping, sliding, leaping, and balancing activities. They match various activities to rhythms. They play games that involve dodging, turning, swinging, rolling, landing, and stopping. They also learn selected isolated manipulative skills including a variety of tosses and throws, as well as kicking, striking, and throwing patterns. Students also develop cooperation skills to enable completion of a common goal while working with a partner or in a small group.
