The physical education curriculum is grouped into 12 instructional units. I have included our units of study for the year for those inquisitive students who always want to know what's next. We touch on a variety of sports and activities, but our overarching Global Awareness goal is to develop understanding how movement and play unite people from around the world. Older students will also be using pedometers to monitor their step count and evaluate which activities provide the most health benefits.
