The national winners of ChildObesity180’s Active Schools Acceleration Project competition were announced Wednesday afternoon in Washington.
Our primary goal is to spread the notion of utilizing Physical Activity in the classroom throughout schools to impact students’ academic performance while developing healthy lifelong patterns and habits in our schoolchildren. Toward that end, we developed SES 513-940: Integrating Physical Activity into the Classroom, an online three credit graduate level course available through the University of Northern Colorado. Offered to educators, participants gain a robust understanding of the connection between physical activity (PA) and academic performance.
