Creating perfect days at school
Physical activity on school playgrounds - the key to good health and better learning and attendance in schools
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) children need at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity per day. But far too many children in the United States are nowhere near that.
