Physical education is an essential part of healthy living for people of all age groups, especially those in elementary school. Physical education at school helps in preventing obesity and high blood pressure. Physical exercise helps children burn off their extra calories. By doing physical exercises individuals use their extra calories to gain energy. Plus, such activities play an important role in the healthy growth and development of bones and cartilages. Bone strengthening exercises such as jumping are particularly important for school children as such activities produce a force onto the bone that helps enhance its strength and growth. While muscle strengthening exercises make muscles larger and stronger, they also help children carry more weight and aid in protecting joints against injuries.
We are so thankful for Mr. Kevin and our BGA friends for coming by today and giving our rising kindergarteners a taste of a real Physical Education class!
