An Active Classroom incorporates physical activity into lesson plans or allows for physical activity breaks during class time throughout the day. Physical activity is not only important to help students live a healthy lifestyle, but it can also improve behavior, concentration, memory and increase academic performance and overall quality of learning.
The Active Classrooms Toolkit has several resources to help teachers implement activity bursts into their classrooms.
