Integrated Lesson Plans for Physical Education and Science: Grades 4 & 5
These resources were developed by teachers from Brevard Public Schools, in partnership with the Florida Department of Education’s Office of Healthy Schools and the Title IV- Part A, Student Support and Academic Enrichment Office. All lessons are aligned to Florida standards for both physical education and science in grades 4 & 5. Florida standards from physical education and science were purposefully selected and integrated into lesson plans that address both subject areas. Each lesson plan identifies all necessary instructional information, academic language, and includes formative assessments to measure student progress.
These integrated lesson plans were developed with the intent of both physical education and science teachers working together to deliver instruction to students. All lessons follow the 5E Model where applicable, and are intended to be taught simultaneously during the school year. For example, the content may be introduced during a science lesson and then experiments and applications introduced during physical education. This allows students to receive instruction in both subject areas and gives them the opportunity to apply their knowledge.
