Reflection and Transfer in Physical Education

Ms. Zaleski challenged her Middle School students to think about their learning in PE from this school year. She wanted them to reflect about sportsmanship, skills, healthy habits and game playing. The students were to think about why we play games and how we play games.

To share their learning, the students worked in teams to design, create  and communicate how to play a game. This transfer task drawing on their learning from the year included the following criteria for the game creation:

  • Purpose
  • Equipment
  • Space Needed
  • How to Play
  • Rules

The assessment took the form of a communication and a performance project. The communication was through a three minute demonstration video. The performance occurred when the designers taught the game and had the other students play the game.

Do look to view a student created video by Ellie and Caroline where they share their "A Journey to the Center of the Elements" game.
