Children Move in School: for Better Behavior, Better Test Scores, Better Brains, and Reduce Childhood Obesity

November 26, 2011

Very educational. Must-read. Watch the video!

Kids Focus ~ Brain-Body-Balancing for Young Learners

While physical education has been drastically cut back in the U.S., Naperville Central High School, near Chicago, has made PE a daily requirement. For one group of struggling students, an innovative program schedules PE right before their most challenging classes. In the six years since that program started, students who signed up for PE directly before English read on average a half year ahead of those who didn’t, and students who took PE before math showed dramatic improvement in their standardized tests. What a powerful way to switch on the brain and fight childhood obesity! Children’s Brain/Body Balancing provides similar benefits – without equipment!

Watch this PBS video to see students on the move in school!
