PE and physical fitness are such important topics to teach kids starting at a very young age. The skills and concepts they learn will carry with them through the remainder of their lives. A quality PE class should be one that not only teaches students about the importance and benefits of being active, but also gives them opportunities to do that. It should sport specific skills and also lay a foundation for a lifetime of physical activity. Additionally, students will learn life skills like cooperation, following rules, gaining self-confidence, strategy and setting/reaching goals.

As students get older it is a great time to incorporate some of the ‘why’ into lessons. Coordinate your physical fitness lessons with science lessons on the human body. By connecting the learning students are better able to make the mental connection and realize the importance of physical activity for themselves and others. Check out the great activity guides by Family Time Fitness to help you do just that. Another great way to teach about physical fitness is to lead by example. Share a passion you have or learn a new sport or skill as a family. Yoga anyone? We have lots of great resources for yoga too!
