P.E., or Physical Education, was either the highlight of the day, or the hour you dread the most in school. P.E. classes exist to keep students active and make sure they don't spend all their time sitting in desks, away from the sun, and listening to lectures. Since school can often by exhausting, the period in which kids are required to exercise and play games generally serves to provide energy and excitement.

Some kids remember running miles and doing pushups for the entire hour that they were in P.E., but others recall the fun games they'd play like flag football or four square. The more competitive students likely look back fondly on their P.E. classes and maybe even miss participating in the epic dodgeball tournaments. Rainy days in particular could ensure than students would be running around a court trying to out-strategize the opposition. Whether you loved it or couldn't wait for the activity to end, it's likely you recall a few of the best P.E. activities from school.
