This visual was created for grade 6 fitness unit (but is applicable to many levels) in which students explored concepts related to heart rate and its relationship to aerobic fitness. Using the modified chart (the Borg RPE Scale actually goes from levels 6-20), students would create activity plans to improve their cardiorespiratory endurance. Students may also check their heart rate throughout fitness activities and refer to the chart to make sure they are working within the proper heart rate zone.
This website contains many resources to download and use in Health/PE education. Look for the link to download Borg RPE resource.
