Actively In Motion
Physical Literacy
Physically literate individuals consistently
develop the motivation and ability to understand,
communicate, apply, and analyze different forms of
movement. They are able to demonstrate a variety
of movements confidently, competently, creatively
and strategically across a wide range of healthrelated physical activities. These skills enable
individuals to make healthy, active choices that are
both beneficial to and respectful of their whole self,
others, and their environment.
