Adults play a key role in children's participation in school recess
from Oregon State University via Science Daily
When adults are participants in school recess — leading games, monitoring play and ensuring conflicts are mediated quickly — children are more likely to be engaged in recess activities, a new study has found. The study, which focused on the recess environment and student engagement during school recess periods, also found that students were more likely to be active and engaged during longer recess periods; that boys were more engaged in recess that girls; and that recess provides more than a quarter of students' school-based physical activity each day.
