Classroom Activity

Action Schools!

Initiative Description: Teachers in Intervention schools were asked to deliver 15 min of moderate to intense physical activity to achieve 75 min of extra physical activity per week (in addition to 2×40 min PE classes). Teachers provided opportunities in the classroom for students to ‘snack on physical activities’ such as skipping, dancing, and resistance exercises throughout the school day.
