Learn though the physical and the impacts physical activity has on affective growth

Learn through the physical...What does this mean? It took a while for me to break this down and figure out the over all meaning. This statement could be seen in many different ways. However, as for me, I looked at the meaning of the words "learn" and "physical"; learn: to acquire knowledge of or skill in by study, instruction, or experience and physical: involving or characterized by vigorous bodily activity By looking at these two meanings I believe the statement means to acquire knowledge about a skill by using bodily activities. This statement can explain why many people say, "Seeing something be done helps me learn better. " By seeing an instructor physically do what you are learning your body tries to teach itself by repeating what the instructor does. Repeating physical activities to help learn something makes it easier to memorize and learn.

How physical activity impacts affective growth.
Affective growth is learning that increases the ability of children to act, interact, and react effectively with other people as well as with themselves. A child will determine how he/she see their would their environment and the people surrounding them. As a physical educator, one can use physical activities that all children win and there in no student that is the over all winner. By doing this you can help your students affective growth by helping their self-esteem. Once a student feels like he/she are in control of the out come of their life affective growth is taken place. Physical activities cant either help or damage affective growth of a child. As an physical educator is it ones job to choose the right activities that will give each child confidence and allows them to have the sense of control over the game. No child should play games that make them feel bad about themselves. It is the physical educators job to make sure the physical activities impact affective growth of the children.
