A quality PE program that meets national guidelines is the cornerstone for a physically active school and helps support improved classroom behavior, physical fitness, and standardized test scores.
Physical activity doesn't have to be in a recess or PE setting to be effective.

Recess for Learning
While brain breaks should be used year-round, testing can be an especially difficult time for staying focused when students have to sit for long periods of time. Try one of these activities to wake up those brains!
Are your students restless from being cooped up inside due to rain or cold? Active indoor recess is a great way to get physically moving, regardless of space or equipment constraints.
Elementary schools should incorporate a minimum of 20 minutes per day of recess for all grades and 30 minutes for primary grades. The benefits of recess also extend to secondary grades, too!
Incorporate physical activity before, during, and after the school day, as well as into daily lesson plans.
Use colorful and playful sensory hallways to turn a passive environment into an active one.
