This booklet is designed for use by physical education teachers of children from preschool to the age of eight. The effects of physical activity on health, appearance, achievement, psycho-social development, aesthetic awareness, and survival skills are considered. The emphasis is on discovering how one moves and enjoys movement during the younger years and on laying the foundations for greater skill development in future years. Class activities are identified by the learning experience the teacher wants the children to have. Games and sports that will enhance the experience are suggested, as well as how teachers may use these activities and how children may respond to them. (JD)
