Abstract: A 5 page research paper that looks at how growth patterns in children should affect PE and sports instruction. Achieving optimum growth and development is one of the primary concerns of physical education instruction. To meet these goals, the adults who instruct school age children need to be cognizant of what constitutes normal growth patterns and also be aware of the ways in which growing children differ from adult norms. Adults should be aware of what constitutes good nutrition for children, and also the possible impact of strenuous sports training on children's growth potential. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
