Physical Education and the Healthy Child.
Gabbard, Carl
Principal, v73 n2 p13,15-16 Nov 1993
American children today are fatter, less fit, and more sedentary than their 1960s counterparts. Teachers mistakenly assume that participation in a general activity program is sufficient to develop and maintain physical fitness. Health-related fitness, defined as optimal functioning of the heart, lungs, and muscles, improves with activities to achieve specific fitness objectives, not in team games. (MLH)
