Physical Activity Participation

Brain Breaks are a quick and effective way of changing or focusing the physical and mental state of students. Students from Bardwell selected a variety of brain break activities that will get students up and moving. The students helped create a PowerPoint to send out to staff with an explanation of each activity and either a picture or video demonstrating the activity.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Students selected a variety of brain break activities. Students took pictures or made videos of each activity to include in PowerPoint. PowerPoint with directions and videos for each activity was sent out to staff.

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

We will provide staff with research on brain breaks and encourage them to incorporate them into their daily routines. We will also utilize them during indoor recess. We plan to continue this throughout the year and into next year.
