Physical Activity Breaks for Classroom Teachers logo – Physical Activity Breaks for Classroom Teachers.

Multiple studies show that active children have higher academic test scores. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend physical activity that adds up to 60 minutes per day for children to promote overall health and well-being. The Michigan Fitness Foundation has revised Fit Bits™ an innovative, best practice resource that gets students up out of their seats and moving while, at the same time, reinforcing nutrition and health concepts that are aligned with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, grade level National Health Standards and USDA MyPlate. The activities are arranged into four content areas: Healthy Bodies, Food Groups, Fruits and Veggies and Healthy Snacks.
