Welcome to the Ellsworth Hill Elementary Physical Education Class

  • Physical education class overview

    To be a good PE teacher, it is essential that we can define and clarify our learning objectives to pupils at the start of each lesson. Helping students to clearly know what they should accomplish by lessons end will increase their focus and empower them to take more ownership of activities and their learning.
