Brain Break Room
This year, our team had success in creating a Motor Lab for Brain Breaks. We set up PE stations all around am empty classroom and had a few parents donate gently used equipment for the room. The teachers take students to the room for a Brain Break during the day. Some teachers are even taking the students before a test and have noticed a raise in many students scores. Students really have enjoyed having a Brain Break, amid not just at their desk or classroom.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students have improved their scores on tests and daily work when the teacher takes them for a Brain Break before their tests or work. Gives students a great opportunity to take a break without extra stuff in their own classrooms.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The Fuel Up to Play 60 team wants wants to add a few more pieces of equipment next year by asking for donations or having a run to support the funds required for more equipment in the Motor Lab.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Getting all the teachers to see the importance of this room and how all students need a Brain Break throughout the day.
