The current unit for the grade 1 class in PE is "Health Related Fitness". The central idea of the unit is, "Our heart, lungs, and muscles become stronger when we exercise regularly." Through various fitness related activities, I want the students to gain an understanding that regular exercise positively impacts the circulatory, respiratory, and muscular systems. We have had discussions about how these systems interact during exercise. By the end of the unit, I want the students to recognize that all three systems work together. Based on the assessment task below(done in a class this week), I see that some of the students do not yet recognize that the three systems work together. I will plan further discussions to ensure that they understand this concept by the end of the unit. Please see slide show below for examples of the students' work.
