Fitness Unit - 6th, 7th, and 8th Graders

During this Fitness unit you will be re-introduced to the 4 components of Fitness: Cardio-Vascular Endurance, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance, and Flexibility. Each class will focus on one specific component, where you will be given various activities to help you improve and strengthen this component of fitness. If time permits, each class will end with a culminating game based activity. Please review the Fitness Study Guide for the quiz at the end of this unit (link above).

6th and 8th Graders: You will be performing the CT State Physical Fitness test next month. Be ready to do your best =)

7th Graders: You will be measured on each component of fitness to help you select one of the four components for your year long fitness goal.

Please be sure to always bring your Student Handbook with you to class.



**There are days that we will lose both the MPR and GYM, so some of the activities may be altered to fit our teaching locations**


** Units that are OUTSIDE (September 13-November 10/ March 5 - end of year) weather permitting, students are encouraged to dress warmly and wear sweatshirts and long pants over their appropriate PE clothing (that they did not wear to school that day).
