Physical Education, together with sport, is a good way to work on citizenship. With physical education, the student gets to know the body culture of movement.
In addition, it develops the potential of each student, helping in the integral construction.
Physical Education in research and schools
Different from what many people think, physical education is not just letting boys play soccer and girls play volleyball.
The purpose of the classes is more than that, and it will be taken into the lives of those who studied this subject at school.
IBGE surveys show that Brazilians aged 15 or over do not practice no physical activity.
Most admit they don't do it because they don't like it or don't want to. Experts claim that this happens because the habit was not cultivated in childhood.
It is data like this that show the importance of physical education in schools, which, like other subjects, positively helps the student's education.
It also brings one more objective: the prevention and maintenance of health. Improved quality of life through an active physical routine is another reflection.
It doesn't stop there...
It may seem that the children are there just exercising, like something that could be done in a street game, but it is not so simple.
This is why physical education is so important.
It should be valued like any other subject that socially seems fundamental.
Of course, we cannot fail to mention the benefits that physical education brings to students:
- Promotes healthy growth and development;
- Improves posture and balance;
- Strengthens bones, muscles and joints;
- Makes tendons and ligaments more flexible;
- It combines learning new skills with fun;
- Strengthens the heart;
- Improves focus and concentration during classes;
- Increases self-esteem;
- Brings the feeling of well being;
- Develops teamwork.
With what they learn in Physical Education classes, students have the opportunity to be more human, in every sense.
