Moving Minds wants to increase activity levels throughout the day for all students. The research and the benefits are undeniable—physical activity has a positive impact on academic performance and learning. Using active seats, standing desks, and fidget busters get all ages moving and improving cognitive performance, time on-task, concentration, and overall attitude towards learning!
Classroom movement and activity breaks can have a huge impact on student learning, wellness, and achievement. But it can be a challenge to put it into practice.
To make it easier, we’ve put together this classroom movement kit. It’s an all-in-one tool to help you tackle the topic of classroom movement with your staff, complete with a short activity, discussion questions, and printables that teachers can take back to their classrooms.
This video helps us understand just how important classroom movement is for students. (It’s incorporated in the staff meeting guide, too.)
Here are the different tools you’ll get in the classroom movement kit.
