MÉTODOS group: Randomized controlled single-blind.
POPULATION: Students of 11 and 12 years old in Andalusia
Sample size: 258 children / children with asthma for a mean contrast (alpha error of 3.4%. 80% power, a confidence level of 95% considering 20% loss. 2580 students will be enrolled prevalence of asthma 10%) . Conglomerates of the CEIP in urban, rural, public and private-reached.
INTERVENTION: Training MEEF with the educational program "Sports and Health Asthma and subsequent delivery, then the students MEEF are 5th and 6th grade ( 3 sessions). CONTROL: The standard instruction in schools. OUTCOME VARIABLES: Quality of life (Juniper) and "control del asthma en niños"(CAN) in asthmatics, Knowledge (NAKQ questionnaire) and attitudes toward asthma (all students and teachers). Pre-intervention (T0), post-intervention at 5-6 months (T1)
Independent variables: Sex, suffering or not asthma, intervention / control, type CEIP.
STATISTICAL ANALYSIS: Comparison of continuous variables: T Students (If normal distribution) "Mann-Whitney (If non-normal distribution). To study qualitative variables chi-square test (normal distribution) and Kruskal-Wallis ( no-normal distribution).

Experimental: Educational Program
Students in the intervention schools learn the educational program "Asthma, Sport and Health" in three sessions during a period of 6 weeks. The content of the educational program has been published elsewhere.
Behavioral: Educational Program
Schools in the intervention group received the educational program "Asthma, Sport and Health", as validated by our group. This program will be taught to students in three lessons with equipment designed and developed by the research group to be taught within the curriculum of physical education subject.
Teachers of physical education specialists responsible for the project at each center will receive the training curriculum for use in a training seminar for a school day by researchers from the health of our group. Once familiar with the educational package of three sessions taught his students and fellow faculty (on different days for teachers and students) within 15-30 days.
