Ulen-Hitterdal Phy Ed Syllabus

Overview
Physical Education classes are designed to practice and develop skills in activities that will help students maintain fitness throughout their life.  Early in the fall students fitness levels will be assessed in the following areas: cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, muscular strength and muscular endurance.  From these assessments we will develop a baseline in which we will use to set personal fitness goals.  We will explore fitness activities designed to improve all areas of fitness.  Our goal is that by the end of the year students will improve their scores on their baseline fitness tests through regular cardiovascular endurance training, muscular endurance training, and activities designed to increase current levels of fitness.  Students will be introduced to life-long activities designed to increase their likelihood of exercising in the future.  Students will understand the benefits that regular exercise can provide for a person’s mental, physical, and social health.

Possible Activities

Touch Football,  Soccer, Fitness testing, Speedball, Ultimate Ball/Disc, Badminton, Volleyball, Weight Room, Basketball, Floor Hockey, Recreation Games, Softball/Baseball, Volleyball, Lacrosse, Cooperative Games, World Games

We will build on the skills developed the previous year.
