COURSE OUTLINE

 

INSTRUCTOR:  Jamie White

 

INSTRUCTIONAL TIME: 5 periods/cycle (3 instructional, 2 activity)

 

TEXT: Personal Fitness: Looking Good, Feeling Good

 

OBJECTIVE: The objective of Physically Active Lifestyles is to create an awareness of the importance of physical activity, physical health and to enable students to make wise lifestyle choices. This course will take place in the classroom as well as the gymnasium or any other venues that are available to us.

            The theory aspect will discuss the body and how important physical fitness is to all aspects of an individual.  The activity portion of the course will expose students to a variety of activities which are perhaps more likely to become lifelong activities for many individuals as opposed to more traditional Phys. Ed. Activities.

 

POTENTIAL ACTIVITIES: Canoeing, Kayaking, Hiking, Back Packing Snowshoeing, Orienteering, Survival Techniques, Curling, Driving Range, Golfing, Weight Training, Cardiovascular Activities (Running, Walking, Aerobics, Tae-Bo), Archery, Fitness Testing, Ringette, Swimming, Bowling, Cross Country Skiing, Downhill Skiing, Tennis, Camping, Ice Skating, Ice Hockey, Geocaching

Many Physical Education classes will be held outdoors during the winter months.  Activities such as snow shoeing, cross country skiing, sledding, ice fishing, etc. are all parts of the PE program.  All students are expected to have winter clothing (jacket, hat, mitts, water resistant pants, boots, etc.) available for each PE class.  Also, during the winter months, it is also important for students to have proper indoor clothing and footwear.

 

Thanks

 

Mr White
