Affective Growth

Affective growth is learning that increasing the ability of children to act, interact, and react effectively with other people as well as with themselves (Developmental Physical Education For All Children. pg, 20). This basically means the surroundings for a child are very important to how they develop, on a social level and an emotional level. Physical activity can impact affective growth by creating a social environment, building confidence in children and giving them an understanding of themselves and their abilities.
