ABSTRACT

Objectives: The results of the study in various countries show that students do not achieve the recommended level of physical activity during physical education class. The purpose of this study was to investigate the level of physical activity of elementary school students in a physical education class and the relation between the level of physical activity of elementary school students and fundamental movement skills (FMS). Methods: Correlational approach was used to analyze the results of this study. Third grade elementary school students (n=43; boys=23; girl=20) were enrolled in this study. The instrument used to measure the level of physical activity was the heart rate monitor chest strap (Polar H10) connected to IPAD Polar Team application Mini that was used during physical education class. To measure FMS, TGMD-2 was used consisting of locomotor and object control skills. Results: The results indicated that the distribution of physical activity levels in Physical Education learning at elementary school classes in Indonesia did not reach the recommended level of physical activity (31.20%) MVPA. Boys only reached 32,65% MVPA on average and only 10% of them managed to reach the recommended MVPA. Meanwhile, the girls reached 31,08% MVPA and only 16% of them reached the recommended MVPA. FMS was correlated with the level of physical activity of students during Physical Education learning at the low level (.203). Conclusions: Physical education class needs to pay attention to the intensity of children's physical activities to get benefit from physical activities besides learning through movement.
