Rotate through stations representing times and places to be active throughout the day.
Move many times, many ways, and in many places each day.
To "move" is to be active throughout the day. Being active doesn’t just mean exercising! When you are active, you strengthen your bones and muscles and give your energy a boost. And as a bonus, after you are active, it is easier to concentrate and learn!
The number one thing you need to know is that moving many times, many ways, and in many places each day makes your body stronger and lights up your brain!
Today’s activity will give you ideas for the many ways you can choose to move at school, at home, and during free time.
*Remind learners to keep physical activity at a low intensity right before bedtime! Suggest yoga or stretching.
