Physical Education Overview for the Model Curriculum Units

View unit yearlong overview here

The grades K-5 Physical Education Units are a cohesive set of five units that will scaffold instruction from one grade level to the next.  The units have been developed as building blocks of skills and concepts that will move instruction from one unit to the next.  All units are made up of a blended set of standards and cumulative progress indicators that fully encapsulate the major ideas and themes behind the unit.  The incorporation of different standards through major, supporting and additional concepts provide a greater opportunity for comprehensive Physical Education instruction in each unit.    The units will progress from basic movement education to developing and applying manipulative skills in various isolated and applied situations such as physical fitness and activity, individual skill development, and cooperative activities.

Unit I Movement Education/ Rhythm

Unit II Wellness

Unit III Manipulative Skills
