>Does physical activity improve student focus? | Edutopia

Just a little blurb that caught my eye. We were in the computer lab today working on final projects, and several students complained about feeling unfocused and antsy. So I had them run laps around the room, with high-knees, butt-kicks, side-skips, one-legged hops and whatever other physical education torture methods I could devise. After about five minutes, I asked, “Feel better?” And they did, and were considerably more focused. There’s a thought: start each class with calisthenics…muahahaha.
