HEALTH EDUCATION

 

K-2nd grade

Students will explain what being “well” means and identify self-care practices that support wellness. Students will use correct terminology to identify body parts, and explain how body parts work together to support wellness.

 

3rd-5th grade

Students will explain the physical, social, emotional, and mental dimensions of personal wellness and how they interact. Students will determine the relationship of personal health practices and behaviors on an individual’s body systems.

 

6th-7th grade

Students will explain how health data can be used to assess and improve each dimension of personal wellness.

Students will relate how personal lifestyle habits, environment, and heredity influence growth and development in each life stage.

Students will determine factors that influence the purchase of healthcare products and use of personal hygiene practices.

 

8th grade

Students will assess and apply Health Data to enhance each dimension of personal wellness. Students will compare and contrast the impact of genetics, family history, personal health practices, and environment on personal growth and development in each life stage. Students will relate advances in technology to maintaining and improving personal health. Students will determine the impact of marketing techniques on the use of personal hygiene products, practices, and services.

 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

 

PRE-K - Kindergarten

Students will develop and refine gross motor skills (e.g., hopping, galloping, jumping, running, and marching). Students will develop and refine fine motor skills (e.g., completes gradually more complex puzzles, uses smaller-sized manipulatives during play, and uses a variety of writing instruments in a conventional manner). Students will use objects and props to develop spatial and coordination skills (e.g., throws and catches balls and Frisbees, twirls a hula-hoop about the hips, walks a balance beam, laces different sized beads, and buttons and unbuttons)

 

 

1st - 2nd grade

Students will explain and perform movement skills with developmentally appropriate control in isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) and applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities). Students will demonstrate changes in time, force, and flow while moving in personal and general space at different levels, directions, ranges, and pathways. Students will respond in movement to changes in tempo, beat, rhythm, or musical style. Students will correct movement errors in response to feedback.

 

3rd-4th grade

Students will explain and perform essential elements of movement skills in both isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) and applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities). Students will use body management skills and demonstrate control when moving in relation to others, objects, and boundaries in personal and general space. Students will explain and demonstrate movement sequences, individually and with others, in response to various tempos, rhythms, and musical styles. Ongoing feedback impacts improvement and effectiveness of movement actions. Students will correct movement errors in response to feedback and explain how the change improves performance.

 

5th-7th grade

Students will explain and perform movement skills that combine mechanically correct movement in smooth flowing sequences in isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) and applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities). Students will explain concepts of force and motion and demonstrate control while modifying force, flow, time, space, and relationships in interactive dynamic environments. Students will create and demonstrate planned movement sequences, individually and with others, based on tempo, beat, rhythm, and music (creative, cultural, social, and fitness dance). Performing movement skills effectively is often based on an individual’s ability to analyze one’s own performance as well as receive constructive feedback from others. Students will use self-evaluation and external feedback to detect and correct errors in one’s movement performance.

 

8th grade

Students will Explain and demonstrate the transition of movement skills from isolated settings (i.e., skill practice) into applied settings (i.e., games, sports, dance, and recreational activities). Students will apply the concepts of force and motion (weight transfer, power, speed, agility, range of motion) to impact performance. Students will create, explain, and demonstrate, as a small group, a planned movement sequence that includes changes in rhythm, tempo, and musical style (creative, cultural, social, and fitness dance). Students will detect, analyze, and correct errors and apply to refine movement skills.
