Fitness Knowledge
(Intermediate 3-5)

This module includes content and activities that are designed to develop and reinforce all of the SHAPE America Grade-Level Outcomes associated with National Standard 3. In order to address each outcome, it’s important that teachers and students utilize the included Fitness Portfolio. The suggested Module Block Plan can be followed exactly or used as a guide for introducing Fitness Portfolio pages in an appropriate sequence. We also recommend blending fitness knowledge concepts throughout the school year. Participation in the Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP) and the use of FITNESSGRAM™ 2015 are strongly recommended.
