Part 1:  Knowledge  (Choose to total 20 marks)      


Due Date:     ________________










1. Fitness Research (5 marks)

Using a source of your choice find two fitness or health related articles based on topics we have covered in class. Each of these articles should have a different view point on the same subject. Some examples of sources are www.mywebmd.com,www.msn.ca, Shape, Muscle and Fitness, Runners World, and Sports Illustrated. With this article:

i) summarize the information from each article in one paragraph. Please include a clear topic sentence, evidence which relates to the topic sentence, and a concluding sentence. (5 marks)

ii) In a page, compare and contrast the information presented in these articles. What did/didn't you agree with in these articles? Explain why based on the knowledge that you gained during this course.

Please include these articles when you submit your work.







2. Game Show (15 marks)

Based on the information you learned in class and other resources, you need to create a quiz show or game show based on fitness and general health. It must have a different format than the substance abuse game that you created in health class. Components that must be included are rules to the game, how to play, a minimum of 15 questions (with the answers included), and any game cards required. Be creative and include any outside resources you use.







3. Personal Fitness plan for the summer (5 marks)

Create a realistic fitness plan that you would be able to implement next semester. Be sure to follow the FITT Principle discussed in class and include various types of activities. Be specific, using a calendar or complete a weekly outline. Provide a 1 to 2 paragraph rationale for your program.

4. Health and PE Brochure (10 marks)

You have been hired as an advertising expert by the Adam Scott Health and Physical Education Department to create a brochure to promote Health and Physical Education to the rest of the student population. Aspects that may be included are the benefits of taking Phys. Ed., highlights of the course, subjects covered, requirements of the students, and anything else you feel is important to "sell" the course. Be creative and positive. You may also include pictures. (20 marks)

5. Fitness Activity (10 marks)

As a fitness expert, the object of this task is to create a useable fitness activity, that would last approximately 15 minutes in length, for an age group that is equal to or younger than you (for example: a Grade 9 Phys. Ed. class, young kids at camp). This activity can be in any form, like a game or circuit, but must be different than anything we have done in class. Include at least 3 aspects of fitness that we have covered in class (i.e. muscular endurance, strength, flexibility etc.)in this activity. You need to include instructions on how to teach/do this activity, diagrams of how it should be set up, equipment needed, and any parts/pieces that need to be included (i.e. circuit cards).

6. Weight Training circuit (5 marks)

Congratulations, you have just gotten a job as a Grade 9 Phys. Ed. teacher, and you are in charge of their weight training unit. They are scheduled to do circuit training in the weight room, and they are ready for something different. You need to create a circuit different from any circuit you have done in the weight room. You may include a few exercises you have done before, but the circuit needs to include cardio and muscular exercises. It has to be useable for a class of 24-30 people. Included in this is a log sheet, and an explanation or outline of the circuit.
