Physical Education Curriculum

Do you really need a curriculum for P.E.? Probably not, unless you are looking for team sport activities. Get up and get the family moving! It's just as important as those rigorous academics and may actually help to make the learning stick.

Gameschooling

Gameschooling is when board and card games are included in the homeschool experience to help enrich learning in a particular subject. In the case of P.E., it's not so much board games as it is sports equipment. Rather than just playing games for fun, gameschooling emphasizes the educational aspect of playing games. Since children tend to learn best while being engaged and having fun, gameschooling is seen as a great way to solidify material that may not be understood as readily if just reading it from a textbook.
