PE teachers and History teachers! Team Up for this interactive, fitness based lesson. It took a lot to be a WWII GI. Integrate this lesson into your WWII unit or fitness testing unit. Students complete the tests and are rated into a category by the teacher based on their performance. Play the part of basic training officer, drill sergeant, etc to convince the students that they must qualify for your squad. Take some time to talk to them about the history of physical education in America and how it is directly linked to military service requirements. So many opportunities for extension and linking to multiple topics! Teach in stations, as a group, outside, in the hallway, in the cafeteria, in the gym. The possibilities are endless!
