8th Grade Physical Education Overview

heart reate monitor  

Daily Quality Physical Education – We want you to be active, understand all your options and be lifelong physical movers!  We hope to create a physically educated person. We want you to learn 1) What is fitness? 2) How do you get fit?  And 3) How do you maintain fitness? All students will learn to hook up to heart rate monitors to see the effects of movement on their heart.  All students will know what different zones feel like- high cardio, low cardio and of course YOUR TARGET ZONE!

State of California says that 8th graders will implement their skill based knowledge and participate in team sports as they get closer to high school.  Continuing the lifelong pledge for our students to be prepared for the outside world once they leave our school, students demonstrate competency in our fitness center and can create their own fitness plan for themselves and others.  Using offensive and defensive strategies, students will also understand the difference in scoring systems and how to implement then for success by all.  Team sports include:  basketball, soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, flag football, track and field.
