My project was designed to address the potential academic improvement through adding movement in an academic classroom setting. I believe that movement is crucial for a child to learn. To have the most opportunity for movement in the classroom a room with no desks would be best. For my project I created lesson plans that incorporated movement in the academic subjects, outside physical education classes. I also designed classroom layouts that provided more open space. I designed rooms that still have desks, but moved out of the way as well as classrooms that did not use desks at all. For this project I implemented movement lessons and assessed their progress and success afterward with an individual in the field.
