Encourage kids to move more at school by demonstrating some ways they can add movement into their school day.
Move is physical activity. To move is to participate in a sport, play, exercise, or do a leisure activity such as walking. Health experts recommend that youth get at least an hour of physical activity each day, but you do not have to do it all at once! Choosing to move throughout one’s day will benefit both body and brain.
Ask kids to think about the many ways they move at school. Have selected kids demonstrate some school day moves. Examples, sharpening a pencil, passing out paper, sitting on the rug.
