Keywords: athletics, scoring, elementary school, physical education
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to suggest that the way to boost physical education performance in elementary school by “grouping” and “numeric conversion” on physical education. In this study, 40m-hurdles and running long jump were selected as educational materials. 15 elementary school students were divided into 3 groups. Baselines were determined for each individual. Students practice in a group, with the measurement records being carried out in the P.E. class and compared against those for other groups. This way shows their goal and growth as relative numerical values. By keeping score collaboratively, students acquired new perspective when observing others. In addition, they took know-how or facture of movement into their hearts.
