Unit Title: Physical Fitness                                   Grade Level: 7th

Unit Essential Questions

1. How does physical fitness/physical activity benefit the body?

2. How does exercise affect a person’s lifestyle?

3. How would anaerobic and aerobic exercises determine a person’s personal
exercise choices?


Unit Essential Understandings
Students will understand:

1. Physical fitness benefits the body by handling the day-to-day physical demands.
Additionally, that physical activity is any bodily movement that uses up energy and
burns calories.

2. Exercise is a planned physical activity done regularly to maintain ones fitness.
Without exercise, a person would not be able to burn calories and maintain a
healthy weight.

3. Aerobic exercises are rhythmic, nonstop, and moderate to vigorous that requires
large amounts of Co2. If a person wanted to burn more calories, they would use
these types of exercises. Ex: stair climbing, running, biking

Whereas, Anaerobic is an intense exercise that requires little Co2 but uses short
bursts of energy. A person who is focusing on muscle toning and building would use
these exercises to reach a goal. Ex: lifting weights, football

Summative Assessment Description

Students will watch a Prezi presentation to determine what physical fitness,
physical activity and exercise influence their lifestyle. They will choose a You Tube
video embedded in the Prezi, listen to the workout and get an understanding of the
job of a personal trainer. Students would then summarize the video and include
what types of exercises, (aerobic or anaerobic) the trainer used, providing specific
names. Additionally, they would determine what goal the athlete was trying to
obtain.

Lastly, students will comment on two of their classmates You Tube Videos and
explain how theirs differed.
