Play. Game. Sport.

These are the differences between Play, Game & Sport.

PLAY is a term employed in psychology and ethology to describe a range of voluntary, intrinsically motivated activities normally associated with recreational pleasure and enjoyment. 

GAME is structured playing, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool. Games are distinct from work, which usually carried out for remuneration, and from art, which is more often an expression of aesthetic or ideological elements.

SPORT is all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical fitness and provide entertainment to participants. Sport may be competitive, where a winner or winners can be identified by objective means, and may require a degree of skill, especially at higher levels.

The Reason.

Some of the reasons why I made this blog because it is one of my assignment to the subject of Outdoor Recreation. First, during the Outdoor Recreation class, I and my classmates have been given the assignment by our own lecturer of this subject, Sir Mustakim Hashim. Among the assigment given by him was that we were given the option to choose whether to use a log book or blog in order to record all the activities or should I say our Final Camp that will be held at Tasik Chenderoh, Lenggong, Perak on 23rd till 31st of December. I was thrilled when I get to go camping again. While in form 4, I always follow the camp organized by my school. By following these activities, I can gain some knowledge and the fun of camping. However, this time the camping is a little bit different because it involves in terms of marking for Outdoor Recreation subject. If I fail this subject, then I have to repeat it again for the next semester. Almost forgot, this camp will also include students of UiTM Shah Alam, UiTM Jengka and INSTEDT.

I think this is more than enough with the reasons of creating this blog and thanks to my friend who has taught me on how to create a blog.
