Flipping P.E. Made Easy-How to Use Home Learning and Technology in P.E.

Flipping P.E. Made Easy-How to Use Home Learning and Technology in P.E.

★Have your kids do some of the learning at home (for instance take a home online rules quiz) thus P.E class can then be devoted to exercises, game play, and movement! 

★Use technology in class like QR codes where students point a phone at the code and instantly see an instructional video.

I've put together real examples of how to flip your P.E. program, and included these 10 activities to get you started:



1) 6 Exercise Videos: Dance, Kickboxing, Bodyweight Exercises +...: Either have students pre-watch before you teach in class, or to do as homework, absent student work, non-suit student work, or as extra credit! Links included.

2) "23 ½ Hours Video": What is the Single Best Thing We Can Do For Our Health? (9:00 min.) Have students watch the video and then and fill out the “Video Review Worksheet” included. Link included.

3) Video: "Dear 16 Year Old Me" (5:00 min.) Have students watch video and then write a reflection paragraph afterwards. You could follow up with a good discussion in class the next day on the warning signs of cancer. Link included. Doc included.

4) How Smoking Affects Your Body: Discuss Chronic Bronchitis, and Emphysema. Have students copy 5 facts from the website to share with class. Link included.

5) VIDEO: The Dirty Truth About E-Cigs (3:00 min.) Have students watch and create an 8.5 x 11 poster about the dangers of e-cigarettes to post in the gym. Link included.

6) "CDC: Tips From Former Smokers - Terrie's Tip Ad" Video: Be sure to have students scroll down and watch the other people’s ads. They are all titled, “Tips from Former Smokers and Person’s name Ad.” Have students watch and be ready to share a reaction with class. If students have a parent or person they are concerned about who smokes, you can have some of my “Quit Smoking/Chewing Tips” handouts printed and ready for students to take one. Link included.

7) "Is Creatine safe for teens?" Have students read and be ready to share 1 fact. Link to article included.

8) Young athletes and energy drinks: A bad mix? Have students read this article, then use the second and third websites to learn more about energy drink dangers in class during one period. Link to article included.

9) "Pickleball Rules Video" for home viewing to save time in class. (Great example of how to create your own rules videos!)

10) "Football Rules and Plays Video": (This is elementary school level, but it has some good ideas!)
