Physical Education: Components of Fitness

I can identify the components of fitness and name one activity for each.

The student will correlate regular participation in physical activity with various components of fitness and improvement in fitness and skill development.

  1. Identify the components of health-related fitness (e.g., aerobic capacity, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, body composition).

Lesson Notes/materials:

Materials: Pinnies, cones, laminated PE signs with elements.

Physical Education: Basketball

  1. Demonstrate competence in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities. (Motor Skill Development)
  2. Apply knowledge of the structures and functions of the body and how they relate to and are affected by human movement to learning and developing motor skills and specialized movement forms. (Anatomical Basis of Movement)
  3. Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of personal fitness. (Fitness Planning)
  4. Demonstrate the aptitude, attitude, and skills to lead responsible, fulfilling, and respectful lives. (Social Development)

Explain the importance of energy balance and nutritional needs of the body to maintain optimal health and prevent chronic disease. (Energy Balance)

Shortest distance with Robots

Students will use a preprogrammed robot to confirm or deny that the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line.

Scientific Reasoning and Logic/ Thinking Like a Scientist

Students will learn how to use Mindstorm to program the robot travel 2 linear meters.  Students will calculate the number of rotations needed to travel the distance.  Students will work in cooperative groups to successfully complete this task.

Probability Robot/ Probability and Statistics

To predict probable outcomes of the robot kicking a soccer ball into a goal from 10 feet away.

Perimeter Robot

Use robot equipped with light sensor to measure the length of a linear path and perimeter of a square.
