Part one deals with the role of physical education in child development. The second section examines how children of different ages and abilities learn, discussing the preschool child, the elementary school child, and the exceptional or handicapped child. Materials and facilities for physical education are the subject of the third section. In the fourth section, the techniques of successful teaching and evaluation of progress are discussed. The final section describes physical activities, sports, and games appropriate for children at different stages of development. Included in the appendixes are recommended films on elementary physical education, and sources for equipment and supplies. (JD)
