During distance learning, educators should continue to address all five National Standards for K-12 Physical Education by selecting associated activities that require little or no use of shared equipment by students. Educators may need to shift the focus of their curriculum to Standard 3 (health-enhancing fitness), Standard 4 (personal and social responsibility) and Standard 5 (value of physical activity) and incorporate activities for Standard 1 (motor skills and movement patterns) and Standard 2 (movement concepts) that are safe and appropriate. NOTE: In some situations it may not be possible to address all Grade-Level Outcomes due to the constraints of distance learning.
Use the Table of Contents on the left for what National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes should be prioritized specifically while students are at home. This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but to provide some specific examples that hopefully serve as a catalyst for educators to generate additional ideas. Be sure to collect a student inventory of available household items. Additionally, some educators maybe able to find safe ways to incorporate some of the activities provided in the In-School Instruction With Physical Distancing supplement.
These pages will be updated as necessary to incorporate changes in national guidance or recommendations.
