Physical Education

  • The K5 physical education program emphasizes manipulative skills (throwing, kicking and striking with body parts).  Students are taught to distinguish between straight, curved, and zigzag pathways. Students identify likes and dislikes associated with participation in physical activities.  Students begin to associate physical activity with their health/well being and their individual responsibility of taking care of the body God gave them.
