Physical Education Digital Library K-5

Standards-Based Lessons, Activities, and Assessments

$66.95 CAD


Product Format
    When students enter middle school, they must have a strong foundation of physical education skills and concepts ready to be applied. With the Physical Education Digital Library K-5, you have everything you need, gathered in one place, to ensure that every child you teach has that foundation.

    This digital package provides a complete elementary physical education program that is delivered online and easily accessed from your desktop, laptop, or mobile device. Easy to navigate, it offers more than 200 new lesson plans encompassing progression cues that help teach skill development. The lesson plans include hundreds of proven activities and assessments developed over the years by leading publisher Human Kinetics and aligned to the specific standards and grade-level outcomes set by SHAPE America, the national association for health and physical education. This resource will help you meet the standards and outcomes without having to build a program from scratch.

    The lesson plans are divided into units of study that are aligned with standards 1, 2, and 3, which build student competence in fundamental movements and physical activity and fitness concepts. They are backward mapped to SHAPE America exit outcomes, which serve as developmental milestones on the road to student mastery of concepts and skills. The exit outcomes also create grade-level scaffolding that adds scope and sequence to your instruction. Standards 4 and 5 are addressed by secondary objectives—including teamwork, cooperation, and classroom rules and regulations—enabling you to promote student inquiry and develop relationships with students.

    Simply sign in to the website to access the library. You can browse lesson plans by standard, grade, skill type, and topic; download activities and assessments on demand; and print them for immediate use in your classroom. With a mobile device and web access, you can take the entire library into the gym, the multipurpose room, outdoors, or anywhere you need to deliver lessons. Spend less time preparing and more time teaching.
    The Physical Education Digital Library K-5 offers special features that physical educators can use throughout the year:  
    • Many types of assessments of both student performance and quality of teaching
    • Reporting tools for tracking student progress throughout the year that can be sent home with report cards to build strong parent–teacher relationships
    • Simple templates for planning the year’s instruction while meeting the needs of your school system and time requirements
    As more and more education and instruction are delivered on the web, the Physical Education Digital Library K-5 offers physical educators the kind of content they want in a way that makes it easy to use with today’s technology. Designed to adapt your changing needs, it will take you throughout this school year and the years to come as you meet the challenge of offering exciting learning experiences that create competent, confident, and physically literate students.
