In third grade physical education, students continue to explore and develop a lifelong enjoyment of fitness and exercise. Students learn the use of manipulative skills in movement combinations, proficient movement patterns in games and activities, productive and respectful collaboration with others in achieving a common goal, and are introduced to basic sport concepts. Students engage in various movement activities including cooperative games, sledding, PE games, and dodging and fleeing games. Students also develop an understanding of the benefits of a healthy level of fitness.
Our third grade students will:
- develop knowledge of basic wellness principles and an enhanced concept of physical fitness
- combine manipulative and locomotor skills in modified sports games
- gain understanding of sportsmanship and teamwork while interacting with others in physical activity
