About the Course

Study after study shows that physical activity activates the brain, improves cognitive function, and is correlated with improved academic performance. This class explores how to tap into the potential of movement in the classroom. Over the course of five weeks, we will learn to easily redesign worksheets to incorporate movement, explore the benefits and drawbacks of classroom simulations, give resources for brain breaks, and more!

This course is appropriate for primary and secondary teachers. Teachers, librarians, instructional coaches, and administrators are invited to join us as well!

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Identify lessons that could benefit from added movement.
  • Implement engaging lessons in the classroom immediately.
  • Improve student attention through strategic brain breaks. 
  • Grade(s): Pre-K Kindergarten 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade 7th Grade 8th Grade 9th Grade 10th Grade 11th Grade 12th Grade Elementary K-5 Secondary 6-12
  • Subject(s): Professional Development
  • Teacher Quality Standard(s): QS 1.B QS 2.C QS 3.A QS 4.C

This was a marvelous class to learn several easy strategies to add movement in your room with your students. I gained so many ideas from the course and from the participants in this course. Everything I learned you can apply immediately in your classroom. I can't wait to see how the students respond to the activities I will use this year. I already have students who are enjoying what I have applied to our remote learning experiences.

Great course in order to find ways to incorporate movement and brain breaks into your classroom. The importance of students not just sitting and listening, but becoming more involved in their learning.
Marissa Jordening
This class was an encouragement to me as it was full of very realistic options for implementing the research of movement into my classroom. I look forward to using what I've learned with my students!
