78TEACHING VALUES SECTION 4 THE FIVE EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF OLYMPISM BEFORE YOU READ – QUESTIONS TO ASK Our bodies are made to move. What do you think this means? Are you physically fit? How do you know? READING Components of Physical Fitness Heart and Lung Endurance – The heart and lungs are muscles. They work much better as a system when they get lots of exercise. They will be able to pump more oxygen to all of the other parts of my body when they are in " good shape." When the heart and lungs work well other parts of the body work better. Muscle Strength – Muscle strength is how hard or far I can move my body or an object ( e. g. kicking a ball, or jumping). Muscle Endurance – Muscle endurance is how long I can repeatedly move my body or an object. Flexibility– Flexibility is how well I can stretch, bend and twist the different muscles and joints in my body. Body Composition – Body composition is what my body is made of. The fat part includes tissue underneath my skin, in my muscles and around my organs. I need some fat for energy, to keep my body warm and to protect my organs. Too much or too little fat can make it difficult for me to do physical activities and can lead to health problems. Fun – Laughter is good medicine. Chemicals produced by my body during times of laughter, joy and physical activity can make me feel happier, reduce my tension and help me stay healthy. SUGGESTED ACTIVITY Read the sentences in the box. Complete them by putting a check in the boxes that best complete the statement. Then add two of your own favourite activities and put a check mark in the boxes that complete the sentences. Then put a check in the fun box beside the sentences that have activities that you think are fun. THIS ACTIVITY WILL IMPROVE MY: A B C D E FUN!
