Name of Activity:

Choosing Appropriate PE Lessons Checklist

Suggested Grade Level:


Description of Idea

The following checklist is a nice guide to use when choosing physical activities to use in your classes.

  • Does the activity provide for differences in the skill levels of your students? (i.e., is it developmentally and/or instructionally appropriate?)

  • Can all students be successful, and at the same time, challenged?

  • Does the activity provide for maximum participation?

  • Can you emphasize the "learnable piece" (i.e., cues, strategy) during the activity?

  • Does the activity provide for maximum practice time?

  • Can you teach your students what you want them to learn from the lesson using the chosen activity?

  • Can you assess student learning?
