PROSOf keeping gym


  • Kids get a chance to exercise
  • Kids get to interact with each other and gain teamwork and social skills
  • Kids get very, very bored throughout the day and need a chance to have some fun and let some energy out
  • Doctors recommend that a child should get at least 60 minutes of exercise per day!
  • 17 % of the boys in America are obese, for the girls the number goes down a little to 16 %


teamwork social skills
Teamwork/Social Skills
  • From gym class kids gain many different social skills that will help them in their future
  • Also many kids don’t particapte in sports so they don’t get the teamwork/ skills that can help them in jobs and in other important classes.

bored2 FUN!!
  • Kids are in class all day just sitting and learning, when they get to gym they have fun by playing and running around!!
  • Also this gives them a chance to get their stored up energy out, which they got from sitting around all day!
cons of getting rid of gym class
CONSOf getting rid of gym class


  • The percentage of kids being overweight or obese will rise
  • Kids don’t get that many chances to interact with others during a regular school day
  • School would be even more boring without a fun class like gym class
obese overweight
  • The childhood obesity percentage is already very high!
  • With gym class still in the curriculum this number could go down greatly!!
  • Studies show that schools that have gym, have a much lower obesity rate/ percentage than those without it
no interacting
No Interacting
  • In class most students work alone and they don’t get a chance to interact with each other
  • When kids are in gym, they work together and interact…. This helps create new friendships
  • Regular classes are sooooooo BORRRINNGG!!
  • Kids just sit at a desk and learn all day
  • - this will result in kids being reluctant to learn
  • Kids get so bored they actually fall asleep in class and without gym they will
  • not get a chance to wake up!
  • Schools really do need gym because its such a big part of the students
  • Gym class should always stay in the school’s cirriculum
  • It is just so important!
