Program Design for Children
Chapter 15
Physical Education Encouraging Motor Development:
Agility: Ability to change the movement direction of the entire body in space,
both rapidly and accurately
Balance: The maintenance of equilibrium while either stationary or moving
Coordination: Ability to perform motor skills smoothly and accurately
Power: Ability to transfer energy into force at a fast rate
Reaction Time: Time elapsed between stimulation and the beginning f a
reaction to that stimulation
Speed: Ability to perform a movement in a short period of time
Physical Education helps reduce risks of obesity, optimized growth and
o Also improves cognitive functioning
Fitness: Cardiorespiratory function, relative leanness, abdominal endurance,
lower-back flexibility, and upper-body strength and endurance
Goals of Physical Developmental Programs:
1. Kids should accumulate at least 60min of physical activity on all, or most
days. Should include both vigorous and moderate activity with the majority
of the time being spent tin activity that is intermittent in nature
2. Children should participate in several bouts of physical activity lasting 15
minutes or more each day
3. Children should participate each day in a variety of age appropriate physical
activities designed to achieve optimal health, wellness, fitness and
performance benefits
4. Extended periods (2+ hours) of inactivity are discouraged for children,
especially during daytime hours
Developmentally appropriate program of physical education should be
based on:
o Motor skill development is sequential and age related
o Children progress through similar sequences of motor development
and the rates at which children progress through sequences of motor
development varies
Gabbard states that activities need to be age appropriate in regards to size,
skill and confidence of the individual as well as gender doesn’t not matter
Standards for Physical Education:
1. Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to
perform a variety of physical activities
2. Demonstrates understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies
and tactics as they apply to learning and performance of physical activities
3. Participates regularly in physical activity
4. Achieves and maintains a health-enhancing level of physical activity
