PHYSICAL EDUCATION We use the course in physical education to teach sportsmanship and genteel social behavior with a particular consideration of the fact that they wilt be mostly involved in later life in playing games with children and other family members at picnics and other get-togethers. We use the games played as opportunities to plant in the children a certain competitive drive while trying to balance it with good attitudes about winning and losing. We also teach the students the need to play fair and to follow the rules of the game. The games played also help develop the students' bodies and coordination.
