To examine the impact of a structured physical activity program focused on bone strength in elementary school children in the framework of their physical education classes on:
- Bone strength of children participating in the activity.
- Physical variables and psycho-motor capabilities: vertical jumping strength, horizontal jumping strength, static balance, dynamic balance and coordination.

Active Comparator: Experimental Group
Children doing additional exercises with upper limbs in physical education class
Other: Upper Limb Exercises
Upper limb exercises
Active Comparator: Control Group
Children doing normal physical education exercises
Other: Normal physical exercises
Exercises usually done by children in physical education classes
- Bone strength [ Time Frame: One year ]Examination of bone strength will be carried out by using a measuring device called Sunlight Omnisense. This device uses SOS (Speed of Sound) to check bone strength and density.
- Bone density [ Time Frame: One year ]Examination of bone density will be carried out by using a measuring device called Sunlight Omnisense. This device uses SOS (Speed of Sound) to check bone strength and density.
