Teachers Extend PE Lessons Beyond School Year by Modifying Neighborhood, Childhood Games with Fitness Elements
Students in Andrew Pulling’s Portland High School physical education classes can maintain their fitness while taking part in family games at this week’s July 4 family picnics by displaying their PE heart rate training skills.
Pulling creates engaging PE lessons for his students by modifying activities many high schoolers feel they might have outgrown. Two of Pulling’s most engaging lessons include:
- A modified frisbee game originally designed for yard or neighborhood parties; and
- Learning to see a bicycle as a fitness tool.
