Energizers for the school day to support student achievement
Implementing strategies that help students stay healthy through eating healthy foods and being physically active can result in decreased rates of student absenteeism, fewer behavioral problems, and higher school-wide test scores and grades. Learn more about physical activity programs, recess for elementary students, classroom-based physical activity such as "brain breaks", and extracurricular physical activities (e.g., sports programs, physical activity club). Brief classroom physical activity breaks (i.e., 5-10 minutes) are associated with improved cognitive performance (e.g., attention, concentration), classroom behavior (e.g., on-task behavior), and educational outcomes (e.g., standardized test scores, reading literacy scores, math fluency scores) among students. A science-based course that is based on the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (PAG) (http://health.gov/paguidelines/guidelines/). PAG provides guidance on how children and adults can improve their health through physical activity based on the latest science. Learn ways to help staff and students understand the benefits of physical activity and how to make it a part of their regular routine. Participants will: • Learn the current recommendations for physical activity for children and adults. • Use culturally appropriate physical activity resources and messaging. • Identify a variety of ways to incorporate physical activity throughout the work and school day. • Explore environmental cues to increase physical activity opportunities.
