SCOPE & SEQUENCE: EARLY CHILDHOOD THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL

This document is a guide specifying the range of topics that are taught in SPARK Physical Education and in what sequence. The topics are organized by the SHAPE America Standards 1 through 5 and are sequenced by grade level. Each individual SPARK program (EC, K-2, 3-6, MS, and HS) includes a recommended sequence for specific content to be taught. This is meant as a guide and can be adapted to and will vary according to such factors as facilities, teaching schedules, equipment, and weather.

I Designates the grade(s) when the content is first explored and/or introduced. The critical elements of a skill may be taught at this time.
A Designates the grades when the content is applied in varying contexts.
R Designates the grade(s) when the content is reinforced. At this time, students review proper form and strive to improve skills and knowledge.
