Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Running skill assessment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    changes in manipulative skill between the intervention year 1 and the intervention year 2. The K-1 students' motor skill competency in running, weight transferring, hand dribbling, and underhand catching skills was assessed using four PE Metrics skill assessment rubrics in the intervention year 1 and year 2, respectively.

  2. Weight transferring skill assessment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    changes in manipulative skill between the intervention year 1 and the intervention year 2. The K-1 students' motor skill competency in running, weight transferring, hand dribbling, and underhand catching skills was assessed using four PE Metrics skill assessment rubrics in the intervention year 1 and year 2, respectively.

  3. hand dribbling skill assessment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    changes in manipulative skill between the intervention year 1 and the intervention year 2. The K-1 students' motor skill competency in running, weight transferring, hand dribbling, and underhand catching skills was assessed using four PE Metrics skill assessment rubrics in the intervention year 1 and year 2, respectively.

  4. underhand catching skill assessment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    changes in manipulative skill between the intervention year 1 and the intervention year 2. The K-1 students' motor skill competency in running, weight transferring, hand dribbling, and underhand catching skills was assessed using four PE Metrics skill assessment rubrics in the intervention year 1 and year 2, respectively.

  5. FitnessGram test [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Relationship between fitness and physical activity.

  6. Daily physical activity participation in minutes [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Relationship between levels of fitness and daily physical activity participation.
