If you went to public school, you probably remember PE classes. There was calisthenics in the gym and kickball in the field. Physical education at home is easy when your students are elementary age. We need them to expend their excess energy as much as they do, so a bike ride around the block or a trip the neighborhood playground is a regular occurrence.
As kids get older, their desire to get outdoors may wane. Added to that is the fact that many states and umbrella schools require at least one PE credit in high school. Many homeschool parents may find themselves at a loss as to how to effectively meet the requirement, particularly if their children aren’t involved in organized sports.
