We were wondering if kids like to play certain sports better inside or outside. We conducted a survey and asked fourth-graders what they thought. Here are the results for the following sports:

Basketball – outside

Soccer – outside

Football – outside

Swimming – inside

Hockey – inside

As you can see, most kids liked playing sports outside and that’s a good thing because it is good for kids to run around outside and get fresh air. Most kids liked to play hockey inside and that’s because kids get cold outside in the winter. They also liked playing dek hockey or roller hockey more indoors. Swimming was an inside favorite. Kids like being in heated pools and not freezing when they get out of the water. All of these sports are fun to do, both inside and outside. We also thought some kids would really like indoor soccer since you can bounce the ball off the walls.
