We have a physical activity crisis: Few pupils meet the minimum recommendation of 60 minutes a day moderate to vigorous physical activity (PA). Not only does this harm their physical health, it poses a threat to their social-emotional well-being and their learning, too.
So how can schools motivate children to more self-motivated physical activity? The school grounds, whether spacious or limited, may hold the solution.
Join this webinar to learn about the newest research on thrilling outdoor play that stimulates pupils’ PA and their social-emotional development, and get 10 tips for active, fun outdoor playgrounds with lasting attraction and play benefits.
