As physical educators it can be hard to wrap our mind around social distancing in PE. We are used to having students collaborate, play, exercise, and work together with close contact. COVID has caused us to have to re-evaluate and change the way we deliver our physical education curriculums. 

This guide is meant to help teachers with tips, ideas, and guidelines to keep students and staff safe, while still delivering a well rounded PE program!

This google slide presentation includes:

1. An Introduction to Social Distancing in PE

2. Tips Regarding the Logistics of Setting up a Safe and Socially Distanced PE class

3. Advice for Equipment Use and Restrictions

4. Ideas for Socially Distanced Sports, Games and Activities

5. A list of Fitness Activities that Lend Themselves to Social Distancing

6. Ideas for Socially Distant Motor Skill Development

7. A list of Dance and Gymnastics Activities and Assignments

8. Suggestions for Social, Emotional, and Mental Health activities
