Children with varying levels of ability are being taught in the same physical education classroom. Little research, however, has been conducted to examine factors that affect social experiences in general physical education from the perspective of the student. This study investigated factors that have positive and negative effects on the social experiences of elementary school children in an integrated kindergarten. The 12 children studied were either excelling in physical education, struggling in physical education or they received adapted physical education through the general physical education class. Results of this study have implications for physical education teachers who teach inclusive physical education classes.
