A manual of elementary physical education skill theme activities for physical education specialists to use in collaboration with classroom teachers
Quality daily physical education is a necessary ingredient in the lives of
elementary school children. Daily physical education has been supported by
Secretary of Education, William T. Bennett, the U.S. Congress, the
American Medical Association, successful programs in France, Canada, and
Australia, and extensive educational research. Its inclusion in elementary
curricula is commonplace. In fact, in the state of California, the teaching of
physical education at the elementary level is mandated by law.
