The Curriculum of the Horace Mann Elementary School--English, Nature-Study, Industrial Arts, Household Arts, Fine Arts, Physical Education: Physical Education
by Henry Carr Pearson - 1913
The work in Physical Education is required of all pupils and is conducted by specially trained teachers in the various gymnasiums of the school. The time assignment is five twenty-minute periods per week for grades one and two, four twenty-minute periods for grades three and four, and three thirty-five-minute periods for grades five, six, and seven. The boys and girls are taught together in the first four grades, but in separate classes in the other grades. A thorough physical examination is given to each pupil by the school physician at least once a. year. If this examination shows that the child's physical condition is such that he should not participate in the regular gymnastic work of his class, the teacher is notified and the parent is advised to provide special corrective treatment or exercises. Likewise, any facts that the classroom teacher or the gymnasium instructor should know are reported to her.
