Kids will learn about how being active and moving can help their mood.
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 talk to a partner about their favorite activity. Is it a game, exercise, dance, or simply standing rather than sitting?
