The Outline

I organized this unit a bit differently than most of my PE units. Usually, we’re in the gymnasium the whole class period, moving around and learning. However, with this unit, we split up our time between the classroom and fitness center – – The first half of each class period was spent in the classroom discussing topics and concepts about physical health. And for the second half, we were in the fitness center working out.
