What are you Counting On: Physical Education and Numeracy?

Physical Education has its own curricular expectations. However, some of these expectations can be met or reinforced through other curricular areas, and other curricular areas (with a focus on mathematics) can have some of their expectations met or reinforced in Physical Education Classes. We will demonstrate some of these activities. Be prepared to learn through involvement in these activities. The workshop includes giveaways of valuable equipment for physical literacy activities.
