The NYS Physical Education Curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and
skills necessary to lead a physically active, healthy lifestyle. Instruction will focus on
developing motor skills through group and individual activities. In addition to developing
physical skills, P.E. provides opportunities to acquire and demonstrate social skills,
cooperative skills, strong work habits, and respect for others and their abilities.
Students who demonstrate these skills, show good sportsmanship, and behave
appropriately will excel in physical education.
