Abstract

Research suggests that physical activity may foster improved academic performance, yet schools are receiving more pressure to achieve high academic standards. It is important for classroom teachers, administrators and school psychologists to understand the benefits of incorporating physical activity into the school day. This article serves as a quantitative review of classroom physical activity interventions in terms of their physical activity, health and learning outcomes for students, with implications of findings discussed for school personnel.
