The easiest way to give children the needed opportunity for physical activity is physical education in compulsory education. Physical education, in addition to physiological benefits that brings to the human body, will help increase work capacity of children to other disciplines.To address this idea further, we want to bring into focus an extracurricular form of physical activity. This form of physical activity was introduced long ago in the school program of children but, it seems, with the modernization of education has been forgotten by most. It presents important advantages, contributing to education for physical activity and solving problems regarding intellectual fatigue of children during other disciplines than physical education.The physical education moment may be included in the school program of children but it is not mandatory. It depends, therefore, by the teacher of that discipline if will insert or not the physical education moment at his class.Due to lack of obligation for the use of physical education moment, lack of minimum knowledge of physiology and probably too many requests for each discipline, teachers have now forgotten the physical education moment and the benefits that it brings. We, however, have positive signs in terms of trials that aretaking place in some schools to restore physical education to its rightful place in the didactic of school education activities.
