Create healthy breaks in your classroom

On average, you can maintain attention on a task for two or three times your age in minutes – so an eight year old can maintain attention for 16–24 minutes. Our AIA Healthiest Schools bitesize activities offer a pause from academic, sedentary school work, designed to create opportunities for physical activity and to refocus students' minds. With active breaks, discussion questions and creative tasks, use these activities in form time, as starters, or 'brain breaks' to help students focus, move more, build communication skills, and reinforce their knowledge of healthy lifestyles.
