The self-contained sections within the document (one for grades K-3, the other for grades 4-6) present objectives, activities, monitoring procedures and resources for the elementary physical education curriculum for Washington small school districts. Identical introductory materials describe the organization of Small Schools materials, relationship to Washington's Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Law, format of the curriculum guide, definitions of format terms, Goals for the Washington Common Schools, and Physical Education Program Goals. The scope of the grades K-3 curriculum includes basic movement skills (locomotor, non-locomotor, locomotor-wheeling/sliding apparatus, manipulative small apparatus and gymnastic large apparatus), rhythmic skills and low organized games (circle, cooperative, court, inventing, relays and tag). The grades 4-6 curriculum includes objectives and activities that build on each of the grades K-3 scope areas with the addition of stunts and tumbling in the movement skills category and combative types of low organized games. New grades 4-6 scope areas emphasize sport skills (basketball, football, hockey, soccer, softball, track and field and volleyball) and physical fitness (aerobics, agility, evaluation, flexibility, muscular endurance, power, speed and strength). Separate bibliographies list grade-appropriate references. (NEC)
