Abstract: By systematically analyzing domestic and foreign research literature on the correlation between children’s fun-damental motor skills (FMS) and physical activities (PA), the authors hoped to probe into the research developments of the correlation between the two, and to provide evidence for that the two have a correlation. The research results show the fol-lowings: the two present a positive correlation; the correlation tends more to children’s fundamental motor skills’ promo-tion on physical activities; the degree of correlation increases with age; there is a certain difference in the degrees of correc-tion of different genders, girls focus more on locomotion skills, boys’ operating skills are higher than girls’; in the two skill forms, operating skills have more influence on physical activities than locomotion skills; some mediating or adjusting variables effect the degree of correction between the two; but from the perspective of reporting literature, the two present a low or weak degree of positive correction, more longitudinal tracking or experiment research is needed to further probe into core factors that affect the correction between the two, to determine the bidirectional relationship and degree of correc-tion of mutual promotion, and then to determine whether the two have a dose-effect relationship or causality. At present, domestic research is mostly review research and started late, the academic circle needs to develop more empirical research, thus enabling parents, schools and society to focus more on children’s motor skill development, to promote their physical activities, to change their sedentary lifestyle, to cultivate their physical exercise habit at the childhood stage, and then to promote, improve and maintain their health condition, so that they grow into healthy adults.
