Inventory Check: Do You Have These PE Essentials?

Do you have the equipment you need to ensure your students have an equitable chance to practice and refine their skills this school year and beyond? “You wouldn’t teach math with one pencil. Why do you expect us to teach PE with one ball?” said Dr. Robert Pangrazi. Download our free inventory checklist to assess your equipment needs. We’ve also provided equipment recommendations at the bottom of the page.
