Activity List

Sauquoit Middle School Physical Education

We have included six activity categories in our Physical Education program.  These categories are intentionally more specific than those in elementary levels because the movement skills of children are progressing from general to specific.

The following activity list should be considered as a sample of appropriate activities from which we may choose or add to in order to reach state standards and objectives.  Not all activities can be implemented in one year however, by the end of eight grade the students will have experienced a variety of activities.
