Kids also develop skills necessary to participate in a wide range of activities such as cricket, basketball or swimming. Regular physical education classes prepare kids to be physically and mentally active, fit and healthy. Physical education helps students develop physical skills and confidence. They would be expected to journal about how they feel during the process and reflect on how these changes affect performance and mood. Physical education also helps students develop social skills.
