Physical Education K–12 Learning Standards:
SHAPE America’s (Society for Health and Physical Educators) National Standards define what a student should know and be able to do as result of a quality physical education program. States and local school districts across the country use the National Standards to develop or revise existing standards, frameworks, and curricula. While many of Washington state’s specific grade3 of 118 level outcomes have been revised from the originals, the National Standards have been adopted verbatim as the Washington State Physical Education K–12 Learning Standards:
1: Students will demonstrate competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns. Standard
2: Students will apply knowledge of concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics related to movement and performance. Standard
3: Students will demonstrate the knowledge and skills to achieve andmaintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness. Standard
4: Students will exhibit responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others. Standard
5: Students will recognize the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and social interaction.
