Physical Education/Pre Test

Physical Education
The pedagogical practice of a complete body workout moving into an activity. This could consist of an exercise routine based on strengthening and a core workout, an aerobic activity such as running or jump rope and an activity such as soccer. This will give students the knowledge they need for a lifetime of fitness. Instruction provided and participation will enhance learning for future uses and give each student the proof of accomplishment for their hard work. Daily improvement proves positive for future work.
