This lesson introduces the concept of physical literacy which, as outlined by SHAPE America, is the goal of physical education. This occurs during an exploration of age-appropriate movement fundamentals (locomotor, balance, and object control skills) where students are introduced to the “why” of moving—to promote joy, challenge, self-expression, and health enhancement. Students are introduced to an initial set of PE classroom protocols, including safe moving in the activity area.
