Once the students are in the locker room, they get dressed into their physical education uniforms and athletic shoes. After getting dressed, the students line up in the locker room and wait for directions to enter the gym. Once the students enter the gym, they sit in squad lines while the teacher takes attendance. After attendance, the teacher instructs the students to go to their warm up lines and the teacher picks a captain. The captain for the day picks a game on the Pe Shape App and it explains it to the class.  After warm ups are complete, the captain directs the class to sit near the white board. The teacher will guide the students through the process of creating a fitness journal. The teacher will show examples and then give the students time to design their journals. Once the class is finished, the captain will lead the class through the cool down exercises. After the cool down, the students will be instructed to go into the locker room and get dressed in their school uniform. Once finished, they wait for the teacher to dismiss them.
