Physical Activity vs. Physical Education
• Physical Activity: bodily movement
produced by the contraction of
skeletal muscles and increases
energy expenditure.
• Physical Education: planned,
structured, sequential program
based on standards. Students learn
the skills/knowledge to be physically
active for a lifetime.

cards from the hula hoop.
Pass out word cards to students; give each student 2
or 3 cards.
