Health & Physical Ed
HEALTH and PHYSICAL EDUCATION
The overall focus of Physical Education is to give students knowledge that will help them to care for the bodies God has given them and to develop physical activities that will serve them for a lifetime.
Students will be taking part in a wide variety of team and individual activities. These activities will be used to promote active and healthy living. Teaching will be done on sports history, rules, skills and strategies and students will be assessed on the application of these areas. Christian responsibility to take care of our bodies will be a focal point throughout this class. Prerequisite: 7th or 8th grade.
