Health and Physical Education for Elementary Classroom Teachers With Web Resource

In elementary schools across the United States, teachers often are tasked with teaching health education or physical education, although they may not have specialist training. Health and Physical Education for Elementary Classroom Teachers: An Integrated Approach is the perfect resource for these educators. It covers both health and physical education, giving current and preservice teachers the skills to deliver appropriate lessons to their young students.
Retta Evans and Sandra Sims, respected educators and physical education advocates, provide everything teachers need to seamlessly incorporate health education and physical education into an integrated curriculum. Based on national health education, physical education, and state-specific academic standards including the Common Core State Standards, this is a guide that will help teachers empower elementary students to become healthy and active.
The text is complemented with a full suite of ancillary products:

The text also features lab exercises that allow students to practice the material they are learning, including designing their own standards-based lesson plans that integrate health and physical education. By using the invaluable strategies in this book, every teacher will be equipped to create a healthy and active school environment that maximizes student achievement.
Health and Physical Education for Elementary Classroom Teachers is organized into two parts, each dedicated to different components of incorporating health and physical education into the elementary classroom.
Part I focuses on the foundational knowledge needed for teaching health and physical education. It addresses the health risk behaviors of today's generation of students, a team approach to coordinated school health, how physical growth and brain development in children are related to health, and the many characteristics and benefits of a high-quality physical education program.
Part II emphasizes the strategies necessary for incorporating health, physical education, and physical activity into the curriculum and school day. It discusses how teachers can become advocates of healthy and active schools, identify habits that promote everyday health in the classroom, and incorporate physical activity and the national standards into each school day. It also presents teaching methods, assessment tools, and evaluation strategies to ensure teaching success.
Throughout this book, practicing teachers and teachers in training will find websites, tips for best practices, sample lesson plans, and tables with innovative strategies. The result is a great resource that teachers can use to fulfill what is both a tremendous responsibility and a unique opportunity: promoting health and wellness in the elementary classroom using an integrated approach.
