Talking about physical activity benefits, ALWAG Kids gave many insightful responses- to be strong, healthy and energetic, – just falling short of being sharp in school and sports excellence.
For 30 minutes they participated in “direction following” activities to sharpen their academic behavior. They also did counting and addition through ampe which they found to be very fascinating. They were able to raise their pulse levels appreciably after 3 minutes of continuous participation in ampe. Simply put, a well planned interdisciplinary curriculum can bring about increases in the overall physical activity levels of children.
Classroom teachers are seriously urged you to jump on the crusade wagon with ALWAG to stimulate the movement to empower children to move. Play-based learning in school is second to none. Let us promote and support active play in schools and communities. The power to move is a direct correlate to academic success.
