Physical Education Grade 7:
While primary skill progression in team sports is still followed in the seventh grade, strategies and game competition are added to the activities. Playing the game properly is emphasized over winning. Physical Fitness Testing units are included in the Fall and in the Spring and students participate in daily fitness routines as a warm up throughout the entire year. Additional cooperative games are chosen to develop problem-solving strategies, as well as mutual respect within the group. Rhythm and Dance is also used to teach students to follow directions, work together and cooperate in a group. Grading follows the same format as in the sixth grade. Classes meet every other day for the entire school year.
