Description: LeVar sweats it out on the basketball court, in the weight room, and on a bicycle built for three during SPORTS PAGES. LeVar shares his enthusiasm for athletics when he takes viewers from sport to sport including soccer, basketball, ice skating, swimming and gymnastics. The emotions and feelings of each sport are explored when we meet a variety of young athletes who, through determination and perseverance, express the joy of participating in sports.

Activity Suggestion: This program is ideal for opening a discussion on poetry. How is a poem different from a story? Does a poem tell a story? Why do people write poetry?
