Assignment 1

Giving children the opprotunity to experience the world around them through movement will teach them how to interact with others and they will be able to experience different aspects of motor movement skills. The problem with most physical education programs are that they focused on one learning domain. A real physical education program realizes that children are human beings and that motor, cognitive, and affective approaches should all be stressed. Movement enhances perceptual-motor, cognitive concept learning, positive self-concept, and promotes positive socialization. In short, children learn how to cope with their own bodies, interact with others which promotes moral behavior, and makes them aware of their surrondings.
Healthy People 2020 created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services outlines the benefits of physical fitness, exercise, and physical activity which reduces mortality and other diseases that occur in adult hood.
