Why development of fundamental Movements are important.
The development of fundamental movements are important to help with the overall development of Physical Activity. Without fundamental movements, kids won't be able to learn other, more complex skills, and therefore will not be able to live healthy lifestyles. If a child is taught how to hop, he or she will be more inclined to skip, and then run, and then maybe a more complex skill such as long jump. All those activities started with the basic movement of hopping. I can't wait to get into the teaching environment and watch kids learn skills, and add on to those skills until they can do complex activities.
