4th Grade PE Assignment Due Date: State Goals 19, 20, 22, 23, 24 One of the primary goals of Physical Education in our district and state is to encourage lifetime fitness activities. Students have been exposed to a variety of different activities in their PE classes, and many of those activities can be maintained for a life time. This assignment will help students to determine which physical activities they enjoy the most and have the potential to help them maintain lifetime fitness.

1. Name your three favorite activities in PE that you could also do
at home: 1. ______________________________________ 2. _____________________________________ 3. _____________________________________ 2. Choose two activities from the following list that we may not do in PE, but you would enjoy doing at home. Circle those activities. All of these activities will raise your heart rate and help maintain your fitness. By maintaining our aerobic fitness in PE classes with running, jump rope, and other quick paced activities, you will find the activities below easier to do at home or outside.

Horseback riding Sledding

Walking quickly

3. To maintain aerobic fitness (keep your heart healthy) doctors

recommend that you participate in 60 minutes of activity at least 5 times each week ( or make 10,000 steps each day on a pedometer). It does not have to be all at one time, but everyone’s goal is to total 300 minutes per week. You can count your 25 minutes of PE three times a week. We have discussed in class the FIT principles to help determine the benefits of your activity session. List the fitness activities that you have done this week at home and in PE class. Fill in the number of days (Frequency), mark down how hard you were working (Intensity), and how long (Time) you did each activity. You can do these activities alone, with a friend or sibling, or with your parents. Your parents must sign their

name by each activity. If you do not meet the goal of 300 minutes, just be honest and record what you did do. You may want to keep this on the refrigerator this week or somewhere else where you will see it every day. Activity- what exercise or physical activity did you do? * Frequency- how many times did I do it today? *Intensity- how hard did I work?
