Highlights of the Standards

In elementary school the content standards emphasize the way in which students move through space and time in their environment, the way in which the student and a partner move in space together, the continuity and change in movement, the manipulation of objects in time and through space, and the manipulation of objects with accuracy and speed.

 

The five overarching model content standards for elementary school students are as follows:

 

Standard 1: Students demonstrate the motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.

 

Standard 2: Students demonstrate knowledge of movement concepts, principles, and strategies that apply to the learning and performance of physical activities.

 

Standard 3: Students assess and maintain a level of physical fitness to improve health and performance.

 

Standard 4: Students demonstrate knowledge of physical fitness concepts, principles, and strategies to improve health and performance.

 

Standard 5: Students demonstrate and utilize knowledge of psychological and sociological concepts, principles, and strategies that apply to the learning and performance of physical activity.

 

 

An Essential Discipline

Physical education is an integral part of the education program for all students. It teaches students how their bodies move and how to perform a variety of physical activities. Students learn the health-related benefits of regular physical activity and the skills to adopt a physically active, healthy lifestyle. The discipline also provides learning experiences that meet the developmental needs of students. With high quality physical education instruction, students become confident, independent, self-controlled, and resilient; develop positive social skills; set and strive for personal, achievable goals; learn to assume leadership; cooperate with others; accept responsibility for their own behavior; and, ultimately, improve their academic performance.
