Lesson Plan Templates

One of the request I receive the most when I show people the resources we create for ThePhysicalEducator.com is for Lesson Plans. Today, I’d like to officially state that I’m never going to create lesson plans for ThePhysicalEducator.com.


The reason I won’t create pre-made lesson plans is because I believe in quality Physical Education. Taking time to create lesson plans that fit into your province/state/country’s curriculum, that take into consideration you own gym’s space/equipment constraints, and that, most importantly, take into consideration the needs of your individual students is, in my opinion, a pre-requisite for quality Physical Education. Not to mention the fact that lesson planning is a great reflective exercise and one that I personally find to be an important part of your growth as a Physical Education professional.

That being said, it doesn’t mean that ThePhysicalEducator.com’s development team won’t continue to create high quality support resources that can help you create your own lesson plans. Games, Skill Posters, Infographics, and something else really cool that we’re working on that I don’t want to reveal just yet, are all here to help give you ideas that you can add to your lessons to help your students learn and progress.

OK, that’s enough about that. I want to show you something cool (that just so happens to do with lesson planning).

I bought myself an iPad 2 over the summer and have been toying around with how I could be using it to lesson plan. I’ve created a video that showcases my template and have included a slideshow as well (since the quality of the video didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped).

I’d love to hear your thoughts on using the iPad as a tool for lesson planning (I’ve also created a grade book, but that will have to wait), so check out the video/slideshow and please leave a comment below!

Thanks for reading!

PS: You need Numbers to view it, but you can download my template here.
