Make School a “Moving” Experience
This initiative is to help elementary schools incorporate more moderate to vigorous physical activity into the school week. Physical activity has a number of benefits for students, not the least of which is improved academic outcomes. Principals, teachers, and parents all play a key role in ensuring children are meeting the recommended one hour of physical activity per day.
Creating a plan for physical activity and how it can be incorporated into your current school schedule will help you find an additional 5-10 minutes, beyond Physical Education and recess, when your students can get up and move.
