A Model for a Physically Literate Lifestyle

This model is intended for educators and emphasizes life-long development of physical literacy with being 'active for life' as the central aim. Physical Literacy stems from three dimensions of a physically literate person: cognitive, motor (movement), and affect (social, emotional, spiritual) while also linking to health and nature (the environment). Movement takes the central position and has enjoyable play as a central theme.

This is a great resource created by PHE Canada and demonstrates the progressive nature and importance of physical literacy on an individuals life.


We are a group made up of teachers, researchers, coaches and a physiologist who advocate for Physical Health Education and Sport in Canada.
