dc.description.abstract The attention spans of young students appear to be getting shorter and shorter. Students are becoming less engaged in physical activity both inside and outside the classroom. With the rigorous demands of the new California Common Core Standards, students are being compelled to remain seated for long periods of instructional time. Movement breaks, also known as brain breaks, get and keep kids active. Research has proved that when implementing movement breaks students become more focused, engaged, and attentive. The project's goal is for elementary school teachers to gain knowledge as they continue to boost their students' participation, engagement and content retention in a movement-based classroom. en
