Ramsey PE and Health Course Descriptions

 Physical Education

6th, 7th & 8th grade students will participate in coordination and sport, fitness, cooperative, and lifetime activities. These opportunities will address movement skill and knowledge, physical fitness, personal and social behavior, and the value of living a physically active lifestyle. Students will also have an opportunity to work as a team, develop and refine previously learned skills, learn new concepts in fitness development, and assess their own active lifestyle.

Learning targets graded in Phy Ed can be seen on your specific teacher's website.

Within Health Education, students will work to develop the skills necessary to live a healthy lifestyle. Part of a healthy lifestyle is being able to: set goals; use decision making skills; advocate for the self and others; analyze influences; access data; use communication skills; comprehend concepts; and practice healthy behaviors.
