Shyam Prasad SedaiAbstract:
Movement during preschool age is the primary way of action, expression, learning and development. The aim of the paper is to consider the relation between physical fitness and cognitive domain in preschool children. According to contemporary creativity theories, knowledge has an important role to play in forming of a critical level below which creativity is not possible. Insufficiently stimulated and developed motor skills and cognitive domain at this age can be the cause of decreased or ’slumbered’ physical fitness. Estimation of motor performance (motor testing - validated battery of 7 motor tasks) and physical fitness (Torrens TCAM test) has been carried out in Kathmandu Valley on the sample of 224 preschool children aged 6 to 6. 5. The results show that motorically more able children (with higher level of cognitive domain) have made better results in TCAM test tasks. The obtained results point to the need to provide preschool children with suitable conditions leading to their optimal motor development and creative motor expression.Pages: 45-48 | 711 Views 26 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
