Abstract

Our goal in physical education is to provide children with the knowledge, skills, and behaviors for a lifetime of physical activity. By providing a variety of engaging activities, students have the opportunity to learn and develop a solid foundation of motor skills and express themselves through movement. To accomplish these goals, extensive planning and preparation, including modifications of activities, is required so all children can experience success. Varied teaching methods allow for students with different abilities and learning styles to become actively engaged. Creating a safe and encouraging environment helps students build healthy relationships and a love for physical activity.
