Abstract: 

THE AIM OF PRESENT RESEARCH WAS TO COMPARE THE EFFECTS OF THE COMPETITIVE ACTIVITIES AND COOPERATIVE LEARNING ON SELECTED FACTORS OF PHYSICAL AND MOTOR FITNESS IN SCHOOL CHILDREN. FOR THIS REASON 48 STUDENTS AGED BETWEEN 12– 14 YEARS WERE SELECTED AND RANDOMLY DIVIDED INTO TWO EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS.
AFTER DETERMINING THE BASE LINE MEASURES FOR SOME FACTORS SUCH AS BALANCE, AGILITY, FLEXIBILITY, SIT-UP AND 450-M RUNNING TESTS, THE SUBJECTS TRAINED FOR 8 SESSION AND MEASUREMENTS WERE REPEATED (POST-TEST). DATA WERE ANALYZED USING INDEPENDENT AND DEPENDENT T-TEST AND THE LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE WAS SET AT P<0.01. THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT COOPERATIVE LEARNING METHOD IN INHOMOGENEOUS, REGULAR, AND SMALL (IN TERMS OF SKILL AND ABILITY LEVEL) GROUPS IS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE COMPETITIVE METHOD IN REGARDS TO IMPROVING THE PHYSICAL AND MOTOR FITNESS. BASED ON THE FINDINGS OF THE PRESENT STUDY, IT COULD BE SUGGESTED THAT FOR ENHANCING PHYSICAL AND MOTOR FITNESS, AND TAKING THE ADVANTAGES OF COOPERATIVE LEARNING, SCHOOL TEACHERS COULD USE THIS METHOD FOR TEACHING PHYSICAL EDUCATION.
