The study, evaluation was carried out to body mass index and basal metabolic rate, step number of days in boys children.This study attended 588 boys child among aged 7-11 who are receiving education in Muğla Primary Schools in the education period of 2009-2010. Permission was taken from Muğla Provincial directorate for national education, schools directors and physical education teachers.In order to determine the levels of step number of days with pedometer device 2 consecutive week days and 1 weekend day to a total of three days measurements were made. In order to determine body mass index (BMI) formula (body weight / height ² ) were used. In order to determine rate of basal metabolism (BMR) formula (66.743+13.752 x Ağırlık (kg)+5.003*Boy (cm)-6.755 x Yaş (yıl)) were used.Statistical analysis were made in the SPSS (version 15.0) packaged sortware. Children’s body weight, height, BMI, physical activity level and basal metabolic rate (BMR) were compared with respect to the variable age. To determine differences occording to age one-way analysis (ANOVA), and it was used Tukey HSD test to determine which age group stems differences in as a result of anova.Among children’s height, weight, physical activity levels, BMR and BKI values differences were found in the level of p
