This is part two of a two-part Web Forum series on the Ready for Recess program, which was developed by Jennifer Huberty, Ph.D. and Aaron Beighle, Ph.D., experts in improving physical activity in children. Click here for part 1.
Part two is intended for teachers and other school staff who are directly involved with leading recess activities. The Ready for Recess program can help prevent and alleviate childhood obesity by increasing students’ ability to be more physically active during recess through practice and environmental changes.
During this Web Forum, presenters will discussed:
- The academic and health benefits of recess being frequent and efficient;
- Easy and fun activities teachers and staff can implement to get students more active;
- How support and participation can motivate children to be more active; and
- How to be creative with equipment, space and temperature to promote physical activity.
