No elementary homeschool program should be without a vigorous physical education and recess program. The regular outdoor play that children partake in:
• Contributes to cardiovascular health
• Teaches fundamental motor skills (such as hopping, skipping and jumping)
• Helps them to develop stamina and flexibility
• Helps young children relive stress
Research has shown that free play alone does not provide the level of activity your child needs to reach on a regular basis, so it's a good idea to add activities like a brisk walk, jogging, bike riding or skating to the mix.
