ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of physical education in schools. In the United States and Great Britain, guides are published that emphasize on the roles of the physical education and suggest that school children should work out at least for 60 minutes per day to maintain their physical, physiological and psychological developments. The article also tries to correlate physical activity with the educational progress. During elementary education, children should be involved in physical education so that they remain active in it through out their educational time span. The article reviews literature of physical education and tries to define terms and concepts of physical activities which could be taught during physical education sessions. The article also provides the assessment modes to measure physical activities of students.
