Physical Education 7

Course Description

Scientific evidence has shown that regular physical activity is essential to our health and wellness. The American Heart Association has indicated that the primary cause of heart disease, the number one killer in the United States, can be treated with daily participation in physical activity. This course will teach students to make informed decisions that will assist them both now and in the future. Students in 8th grade physical education will be exposed to a variety of lifetime physical activities such as canoeing, cycling, and kickboxing. Every student is different; therefore every student will design and participate in a fitness program that meets their individual fitness needs and interests.
