Excerpt from Physical Training for the Elementary Schools: Gymnastics, Games, and Rhythmic Plays

Play is nature's method of developing the nervous and muscular mecha nisms that give control of the body. As children advance in age, they turn from the spontaneous friskings and gambolings of alliyoung life, to games of cooperation involving intellectual and social elements. The mere joy of muscular exercise is forgotten in the cfi'ort to secure the object of the game. Imitation, emulation, rivalry, the most persuasive human motives are enlisted. But games have moral values quite equal in importance to their physical values. Cooperation, courtesy, self-control, a spirit of fairness are Vital in Well conducted gamesh Hence the modern school is provided With a spacious playground equipped With suitable apparatus; for it is recognized that air, sunlight, companionship, and play are essential conditions of growth and development.
