The benefits of physical activity in the classroom are numerous; however, due to the current emphasis on performance and testing, schools limit the amount physical activity throughout the day. The purpose of my project is to discover the benefits of integrating more physical activity for students in the elementary school classroom. Through current research, teacher interviews, and self-observations, I have found that physical activities in the classroom have many social, emotional, and cognitive benefits. I have also created some activities for teachers to incorporate them in their classroom as a part of my senior capstone.
