Children of this age are involved in group activities that require more sophisticated, sequenced actions to perform a skill. Gymnastic activities provide opportunities for children to practice more coordinated, sequenced actions requiring use of arms and legs together in varying patterns. These opportunities are important, as children can develop lifelong skills that may translate later into physical abilities for sports or recreational activities.
