In Physical Education, constructive teaching is a teaching approach that can lead to constructive learning, focusing on the active engagement of students based on their previous learning experiences. This study investigated the relationship between constructive teaching and learning. The sample consisted of 25 Physical Education Teachers (PETs) and their 909 students from fifth and sixth grade of elementary schools from all regions of Greece. As a measurement tool for teachers was used the Chen, Burry-Stock και Rovegno’s (2000) questionnaire The Constructivist Teaching Practices Inventory in Elementary Physical Education (CTPI-EPE) with four factors and 36 questions, and for the students was used an adaptation of the same tool. The results showed very weak to negative correlations between constructive teaching and learning in Physical Education. In conclusion, targeted teachers’ training is necessary to reinforce students be leaded to more constructive autonomy in their learning.
