Do your students see the connection between their lessons and preparation for fitness assessment? Too often teachers assess the fitness levels of their students without adequately preparing them. The activities and ideas presented in this session are designed to be an enjoyable way for students to learn about health-related fitness and to enable them to be more prepared for both informal and formal fitness assessments.
