Adding Fun to the Games
Traditional physical education programs often emphasized team sports or activities that students found boring or irrelevant, such as rope climbing.
Newer programs are highlighting activities and games that young people can be found participating in on their own--in-line skating, for one. They also offer activities that individuals can devote a lifetime to, as well as lessons in living a safe and healthy life.
