PHYSICAL EDUCATION GRADE 6-8
CAC PE Middle School courses are designed to facilitate students learning and skill acquisition at all levels of ability and experience Students in grades 6 through 8 further their education in fitness, recreational activities, body movement, individual and team sports, and swimming/water sports. Through ongoing assessment of personal fitness levels, students monitor their own progress toward the attainment of lifelong personal fitness goals. The physical, social, and emotional aspects of lifelong health are examined and students practice individual sports that promote the attainment of individual fitness goals. Skills are developed over the course of the three-year continuum based on individual readiness and personal goals. In grade 6, the foundational skills are emphasized. In grades 7 and 8, students build on those skills and work to improve individual and team performance. Project Adventure activities aid in the development of essential 21st-century life and career skills.
