Can schools keep students focused with reductions to PE and recess?
from By Bob Kowalski
Reductions in recess and cuts in physical education classes have effects that go beyond children's fitness. The lack of physical activity has a bearing on learning as well. That leaves educators in a quandary about how to increase movement while sticking to the lesson plan. Is there a way for educators to make desks less confining while maintaining focus on lessons? There may be benefits in fidgeting, and some educators are putting their creativity to use.
