Physical Education

Our elementary PE program at Champaign Unit 4 includes different lessons from many different units. Some of the units include team building or cooperative lessons, fitness, adventure education, dance, and team sports. Our cooperative units include lessons that enable students to respect one another and work together in order to achieve different objectives. Fitness units relate to the students' ability to develop physical strength and cardiovascular endurance. Cardiovascular endurance, specifically requires students to exercise their bodies for extended periods of time.

 

Physical Education Program Goals:

  • Physical Education will provide every student with a variety of challenges that will contribute to the development and maintenance of their physical, cognitive, and affective well being. 
  • Students will be provided with the foundation of making informed decisions that will empower them to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • Physical Education is a lifelong process, which is the primary responsibility of the student, shared by home, district and community.
  • We also promote good sportsmanship and an appreciation for physical fitness at early ages.
