Final part 1

We were given a website and may links that followed and were asked questions based on what we read and saw in the videos that were up. The web sit is from Canada, it is located in North America. The country the website is from is also Canada. If I were asked to locate Canada on the map I would be able to do so. After watching the video i think that the topic is interesting, and how they have found correlations between physical activity and learning. Going into physical education its nice to see that people are stating to realize that having an active lifestyle is beneficial to everyone not only for heath reasons but for young children and even adolescent children to help develop their minds. The PE teacher was not involved in the experiment due to the fact that all the physical activity took place in the classroom, with the teacher. The children did twenty minutes of cardio, before they started their lesson. The outcomes of the study was that 15 min or more break from the classroom will better the students grades, due to that fact that they were stimulating their bran's and keeping the impulses continuous throughout the day which aloud they to say focuses when it came time to learning. The outcomes are similar to the NYS standards as well as different from them. They are similar in the fact that they want every student to be active and learn a healthy lifestyle but they don't look at the students skill levels, and if they are competent in a specific skill and base that on what activities are performed. The teachers do not look as much in to the cognitive and affective goal and objectives as PE teachers do.
