At GrowFit, we create developmentally appropriate, quality Physical Education curriculum that our teachers use to lead classes that engage students and teach physical literacy. Our curriculum is based on the research that proves that PE is vital for students and provides lifelong health and academic benefits.

One great resource we recommend is Educating the Student Body: Taking Physical Activity and Physical Education to School. This 500-page report by the Institute of Medicine examined the health of children and adolescents in the United States and Physical Education in our schools. The full report is available online and a free PDF copy can be downloaded at the National Academies Press online bookstore.

Their recommendations and findings are presented in the video and these documents that we would like to share with you:
