Brain Break Resource and Videos

Thank you to Kim Kish for sharing this web site with these Brain Break videos. The videos are easy to follow and can probably be put on the SMART Board. I can not wait pilot these with a few classes.

Student Assessment Binder

PE Universe is a great web site to view physical education content,
assessments, and to watch activities in action. I found this video on assessments and wanted to share this with all of you.

With the new standards based assessments which need to be implemented and reported to the state, I thought this might be an interesting way to organize your students PE work. Most of the secondary (6-9 grade) assessments will be project or portfolio based. This assessment format will allow teachers to look at the students cumulative work and the students (especially high school) will be able to actually USE this binder once they graduate!

PE and Project-Based Learning

Project-Based Learning and Physical EducationDecember 22nd, 2010 by ASCD Whole Child Bloggers

Post submitted by Andrew K. Miller, an educator and consultant for the Buck Institute for Education, which specializes in project-based learning for the 21st century. Connect with Miller on Twitter @betamiller or by e-mail at

Physical education (PE) can be a place where relevant and authentic learning can occur. I think project-based learning (PBL) is one way to not only create this, but to also show others how valuable PE can be. When done well, PBL gives students a relevant and authentic task—a problem or challenge—that they, as a team and as individuals, must explore and solve.
