Ice Breakers for Teaching Physical Education Remotely Webinar

15 Great PE Ice Breaker Activities to Get Your School Year and Remote Classes off to a Fun Start


This webinar was an integral part of setting myself up for success for distance learning. The icebreakers let me do something I would normally do in person online. It created so much more comfort for my students, they enjoyed it, and I know I can use these in the future in person too. Steve does such a great job showing how to use each icebreaker, and the ones he chose are well vetted. Along with the course called Teaching PE and Health Remotely that PE central offers, I feel extremely confident and prepared to conquer this distance teaching situation.
