A student recording data at the completion of one of the fitness stations in PE class.
The grade 3 students are currently working on using data to create tables in maths back in the classroom. To support this work, I had the students once again take part in some fitness activities in the current Health Related Activities unit that I am doing in PE. In speaking with the classroom teachers, we thought that it would be an excellent opportunity to have the kids record data from each fitness station on a their assessment sheets. This data will be used next week back in their maths class when the students will need to create tables using their own results. Once the table of their choice is created, the students will formulate questions to ask each other regarding their performance during the fitness stations they had done in PE.
I have always enjoyed integrating maths into my PE lessons, but will be making much more of a push in this area this school year. Please see video and examples of students assessment below.
