Welcome to our Joslin Jaguars Physical Education page!! :)
Our mission is to increase awareness to the importance of an active lifestyle. To provide as many activities and reach as many different interests as possible. Our goal is to help our students gain knowledge in how the body functions and start the building blocks that will lead them into different careers, such as kinesiology and the medical profession.
Kindergarten student doing the Bear Walk on the Parallel Bars during the Gymnastics Unit. Muscles are also taught at this time to all grade levels. By Second Grade, students are able to identify what stretches increase flexibility to a particular muscle.
First grader practicing a Donkey Kick, which will then help him to learn a Cartwheel. Students learn about progression in Physical Education. How learning one activity can help you learn, and be successful, at another activity.
During the first part of the 3rd Nine weeks, our students participate in gymnastics activities and learn about muscles and flexibility. They learn the difference between stretching and strengthening a muscle. And, most importantly, they HAVE FUN :)
