ABSTRACT

Child development is a continuous process, dynamic and non-linear, in which the movement sets up one of the vital needs of the human being. This quasi-experimental study aimed to analyze the magnitude of change in the coordinative level of 43 schoolchildren aged between 6 and 7 years, of both sexes, subject to two distinct physical activity intervention programs, separated in the experimental group (GE) and control group (GC). To evaluate the motor control using the Körperkoordinationstest Test Für Kinder (KTK). The data were subjected to statistical analysis by applying the tests of normality and t-student (for independent samples and for paired samples). The results indicated that, in General, boys obtained average scores above those of girls, and there was a decrease in the levels of coordination in schools with older age. In addition, it was noted that the GE obtained higher that the GC.
