Game Size Affects on Physical Activity Levels and Ball Touches of Elementary School Children  in P.E.

In this study Dr. Bell monitored the physical activity levels, and ball touches in children in elementary P.E. through pedometers, accelerometer counts, and minutes of physical activity, to determine how they are affected by game sizes of small (3v3), medium (6v6), and large (12vl2). His findings supported increased physical activity and involvement in children when implementing smaller-sided  games.
