Temples of the Holy Spirit
Biblical Foundation for Teaching Physical Education
Since God has ordained the Holy Spirit to dwell within the body of the believer, it is important that we take care of our physical bodies to the glory of God. Physical Education allows the learner to acknowledge God's amazing Creation of the human body by encouraging continuous development of the body's physical abilities. Physical Education also provides a venue for teaching godly character, such as working as a member of a team, encouraging others, being gracious when one has been the "winner" and the "loser," and doing one's best to the glory of God.
The Physical Education curriculum is designed to instruct the young student in basic motor skills, development of coordination and perception, organized game playing, teamwork, endurance, and strength training. Research tells us that the physical development of the young child affects the whole child's development and is specifically interrelated to a child's cognitive development.
