2015 - 2016 Issue 6
Heritage Elementary School
Heritage Elementary School is located in College Park, Georgia. This week Mr. Demond Leslie was teaching the students about the overhand and underhand throw. The lesson started with exercises and followed with a YouTube video about the underhand throw. https://youtu.be/ccavUz99P2w The students enjoyed the steps portrayed in the video - "step, tick, tock". The students modeled the throw and practiced throwing under a volleyball net. Next, the students moved to the overhand throw with paper airplanes! A great way to integrate art and science into the P.E. curriculum! The students loved this idea. Please contact Demond Leslie for more information - firstname.lastname@example.org

Fulton County Physical Education: Definitions of Instructional Technology, Rigor and MVPA in Physical Education
Rigor - The teacher creates a student-centered, challenging environment where individual student and class performance is continually assessed to guide instruction through extending, refining, and applying tasks or activities. The content is linked for transfer of learning within physical education and among other content areas.
Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity (MVPA) - MVPA is the time spent on moderate to vigorous physical activity during the lesson. The intensity of the activity depends on the individual’s previous experience in their level of fitness. It is the expectation that students are engaged in MVPA for a minimum of 50% of class time.

Jump Rope For Heart
Does your school participate in Jump Rope for Heart? This is a great project based learning unit for physical education! I had our community representative speak with the students, and we made post cards for the children at the local hospital. This is in addition to the great things that JRFH does to enhance our program. You can also do the Hoops for Heart in the Elementary School! Please check out www.heart.org/jump or www.heart.org/hoops
