Physical Education K offers students a comprehensive physical education course where the focus is to get students motivated to be active. Students begin by learning about the course requirement of 36 hours of organized, supervised physical activity. They also learn to document their activity in their PE Log. Next, students learn about different aspects of physical education, including different exercise and activity techniques in addition to information on leading a healthier lifestyle that allows them to be more physically fit. Topics such as safety, following direction, friendships with peers, and basic health and nutrition are reviewed. Regardless of the content covered in the daily lesson, students are expected to get up and move every day. They can do so by using different movements, exercises, or the grade-appropriate physical education kit items, which are available to purchase. The kit is designed to work in conjunction with the course content and contains age-appropriate exercise and activity items. Adaptive physical education activities are available for this course.
