Webinar: Integrating Physical Activity into the Classroom: Practical Strategies for All School Health Leaders

Incorporating physical activity into learning helps students manage feelings of anxiety and social isolation, improve concentration and motivation, and reduce sedentary time while also benefiting their academic performance. During COVID-19, teachers are faced with unique challenges of engaging students in a virtual environment and/or physically distanced and behind a mask. Integrating movement into the school day is a simple strategy to achieve engagement, connectedness, and community, no matter the learning environment. Springboard to Active Schools has developed two new resources to help teachers and caregivers easily integrate physical activity with a safety, inclusion, and equity lens in different learning settings. During this interactive webinar, presenters will provide both an in-depth look at these newly released resources and model using and adapting the printable energizer cards.
