Third Grade Physical Education

Students continue to develop and refine the correct techniques for using manipulative skills in games. Soccer, track, badminton, volleyball and floor hockey units are introduced. We continue to emphasize and apply sequential skill progressions in partner and small group activities, followed by lead-up games. During Healthy Habits, we discuss the importance and benefits of exercise, proper rest and nutrition, in addition to the health risks of tobacco use. With their iPads, students learn to assess their performance to learn or improve movements or techniques. Students engage in small and large groups to develop positive social interaction and group dynamic skills.
