Physical Education

At Unity School, physical education is viewed as an integral component of a child’s overall educational experience.  Each student is provided the opportunity to experience success in a risk-free environment, regardless of personal ability and/or physical limitations.  Class periods are planned to maximize the students’ activity time and to minimize periods of inactivity.  The all-encompassing goal of the physical education program is to change one’s life by filling it with purposeful, meaningful, and enjoyable physical activity.  That general goal is further divided into seven performance and behavioral standards, which are derived from the national standards set forth by the National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE).  At each level, the curriculum is designed to allow students to meet and exceed the following standards:

  1. The student demonstrates competency in many movement forms and proficiency in a few forms of physical activity.
  2. The student applies concepts and principles of human movement to the development of motor skills and the learning of new skills.
  3. The student analyzes the benefits of regular participation in physical activity.
  4. The student values physical activity and is a regular, active participant.
  5. The student achieves and maintains a health-enhancing level of physical fitness.
  6. The student demonstrates responsible personal and social behavior in physical activity.
  7. The student understands that physical activity provides the opportunity for enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and communication.

In order to allow our students to achieve these standards, the following objectives were established for each level of learning.  The objectives are developmentally and age appropriate; however, each student is challenged to the best of his/her abilities.  The objectives are consistent with Florida’s Sunshine State Standards.

Students in preschool attend PE once a week.  The students learn basic movements: twisting, jumping, some spatial, balancing, loco-motor movements, catching, throwing, etc.  This is a great time for the students to become familiar with the different areas of the campus as well as to promote physical activity.

K – 2nd Grade:
Students in Kindergarten – 2nd Grade attend physical education 4 times per week.  Units are generally broken down into 2-3 week segments with each concept building on prior concepts learned.  Each unit is introduced in proper sequence through developmentally appropriate activities that provide an opportunity for each child to succeed. 

3rd – 5th Grade:
Students in 3rd – 5th Grade attend physical education class 3 times a week.  Each unit of instruction is generally broken down into a four-week period.  Basic skills and concepts learned in the primary level are refined and built upon in order to learn more complex concepts.  At each level of development, activities are developmentally appropriate with the success of each student in mind.  At this level, various games and popular sporting activities are introduced.  All major sports are taught including, but not limited to, baseball, football, soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. 

6th – 8th Grade:
Students in 6th – 8th Grade attend physical education class 2 times per week with an additional course offered as an elective.  Units of instruction are generally broken down into four-week periods.  The emphasis at this level is an appreciation and deeper understanding of various sport and physical activities.  Major emphasis is also placed on fitness concepts and their application to life in the future.
