Motor activity and the effects on development in evolutionary age

Manuela Valentini, Alice Mercatelli



In recent years several studies have been carried out attesting to the importance of motor education within Primary schools. The integration of physical activity into the school curriculum is a way to increase levels of movement by interrupting static moments produced by the traditional lesson, and in unison, stimulate with active methodologies the acquisition of more complex content and making them more motivating. Motor exercises are therefore not only beneficial or health-based but, when linked with cognitive objectives, they can also improve school learning. A systematic review has been carried out on the main search engines to understand the results obtained in the cognitive, motor and educational fields at European level and beyond, reflecting on any adjustments to be made or taking for example those experiments that have obtained positive needs, as a sample for a strengthening of motor activity in primary school, still not always carried out also at institutional level and not easy to investigate in this particular target audience.
