Physical Education (PE) courses in the middle school are based on the acquisition of knowledge and skills that provide the foundation for sport, a physically active lifestyle, and social development through physical activity. Activities typically include those that increase strength, endurance, and flexibility: reinforce safe technique: teach the rules and conventions of games and sports: and explore the relationship between physical activity and health. Specific content depends upon state standards for each grade level.
