Take a Break! Teacher Toolbox for Physical Activity Breaks in the Secondary Classroom
When you move more, you learn more because healthy students learn better.

Elementary students should not be the only ones to receive and benefit from PA breaks in the classroom.
Within this guide you will find useful, tangible, and practical examples, tools, and templates gathered from resources throughout the nation and within Colorado to create, enhance, and implement activity breaks in your secondary classroom.
