Traditional ethnic games are respected as one of the most efficient physical education tools by many nations including Evenks – who are known to appreciate and protect the historical children’s sports and competitions. Objective of the study was to experimentally rate benefits of the active ethnic Evenk games for physical education of senior preschoolers. We used questionnaire surveys, interviews, discussions, traditional physical fitness tests and mathematical statistics data processing tools for the purposes of the study. The experiment was designed to complement the preschool physical education program with elements of traditional Evenk active games and rate the group physical progress by the pre- versus post-experimental physical fitness tests.
