• Students improve their interpersonal skills by also
increasing their own levels of motivation and pride in
what they do.
• Success through team work is another major
component within PE.
13. Why is Physical Education Important?
Brain research clearly suggests:
That sensory and motor experiences are imperative to
reinforcing and strengthening brain connections.
Physical Education improves academic performance.
14. • Americans become increasingly
less active with each year of age.
•Inactivity among children has now
been linked to sedentary living among
15. • Evidence now exists to
show that inactive
children and youth are
likely to become inactive

illnesses, such as
heart diseases, are a
result of cumulative

• The percentage of young people
who are overweight has more
than doubled in the past 30 years.
•Inactivity and poor diet
cause at least 300,000 deaths
a year in the U.S.
•Fewer than 1 in 4 children get
20 minutes of vigorous activity
every day of the week.
•About 1 in 4 children did not
play on any sports teams, either
at school or through community

Regular exercise helps provide more
glucose and oxygen to the brain.
Regular exercise also helps remove
waste products like carbon dioxide.
Aerobic activity 3-4 days per week
optimizes brain performance!
19. Preschool through Elementary
To Increase Brain Growth &
Focus on developing basic motor skills needed for human movement.
Changing speed of movement
Changing direction of movement
Maintaining balance while the body is in motion
20. In order to promote brain growth and
At about age 10,
the brain begins prioritization.
Before the age
of 10 years…
• Motor skills and pathways need
to be continually developed
Only the most practiced
skills are kept and preserved.
Physical Activity will
reinforce and strengthen
connections through sensory
and motor experiences.
21. After 10 years of age and
Through middle and High

Require the learner to develop new motor skills.
Challenge the learner beyond the basic motor
skills they should already possess.
Variety is the key!

power, endurance, speed, flexibility, range of motion
or agility to increase physical fitness.
28. Physical Activity is Important
Improves cardiovascular and respiratory functioning
Reduces coronary artery disease (CAD) risk
Increased quality of life.
Beneficial improvements in cardiovascular and respiratory function
• An increased ability of exercising muscles to consume oxygen,
• Lowered resting and exercise heart rates,
• Increased stamina
• Resistance to fatigue
• More effective management of diabetes
• Reduced bone-mineral loss
• Decreased blood pressure
• Increased efficiency of the heart.
29. How much physical
activity is recommended
30. Physical Activity is good!
• According to the new 2005 Dietary Guidelines for
Americans, children and adolescents should engage
in at least 60 minutes of physical activity on most,

on Option C.
• Some assignments will be
posted on my blog. Make
sure you know how to get to
39. 1. Have in mind the developmental needs of the children.
2. Observe progression of exercises.
3. Start with easy movements and gradually have more

and will also involve more muscles.
5. Observe symmetry and unity in creating exercises for

42. • PE programmes have a significant influence on the
future health of children, by encouraging pupils to
take part in a wide variety of physical activities
43. Many additional benefits for pupils
co-operation in group situations
acceptance of success and failure,
concepts of working hard and ‘fair play’
appreciation of the skills and attributes of others
44. Physical Education (PE) provides children with the knowledge, skills and
understanding necessary to perform a variety of physical activities, maintain
physical fitness and to value as well as enjoy physical activity as an ongoing part
of a healthy lifestyle.
