Classroom Physical Activity

Getting your students moving in the classroom has been shown not online to boost their daily minutes of physical activity, but also to improve behavior and attention to help them focus on learning when they return to their seats. 

To make the most of your activity time, schedule physical activity breaks for 5-30 minutes at a time and use the Alliance’s tools and videos (no need to reinvent the wheel!).

Through the Healthy Schools Program, you have access to a variety of resources that can make physical activity breaks easier to implement, including the Alliance’s Task Cards and Fitness Trail Station Cards that you can print out and use in your classroom or anytime throughout the school day. And don’t miss our Fit for a Healthier Generation Videos (K-12), which are sure to get students out of their seats and moving.

Now, learn how students can benefit from boosting physical activity during out-of-school time!
