Physical Education 10



The goal in this course is to develop appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable Grade 10 students to value, attain and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.  Throughout the course learners are expected to participate in physical activity, log their activities, and complete a series of learning tasks. The course has a number of booklets and students are expected to master the content in the booklets. Learners will also encounter other resources and links to content of which the learner should become familiar. All assignments are turned in by uploading computer files to the course or completing online assessments.

On the main PE 10 course page the learner will find, on the right hand side, small check boxes next to task titles.  As tasks are completed checks will appear in the boxes to indicate activity completion.


Course Layout:

There are 18 assignments in the PE10 course.  Additionally, students must log 100 hours of moderate to vigorous physical activity.  Activity Logs are submitted weekly.
