Energizers

During the day, students need a “break” from sedentary activities in the classroom. Physical activity breaks meet this need and can increase individuals’ daily physical activity levels.

Physical activity breaks or energizers can be incorporated into the school day during early morning announcements, in hallways while students are waiting in line, and during each academic class as a way of integrating learning objectives with physical movement. Engaging the body and mind in physical activity during transition times will provide students with a much–needed break from sedentary time, and assist them in focusing on the next learning activity.
