DOES EXERCISE IMPROVE LEARNING IN CHILDREN?

Recess and physical education time has steadily decreased or been eliminated in school districts around the nation, displaced by more time focused on academics. Even though research validates physical activity guidelines for children, which encourage exercise at least 60 minutes a day for physical benefits, exercise and its effects on a child’s ability to learn had not been researched widely until the latter part of the 21st century. With the advent of sophisticated technologies, science is now able to prove that exercise benefits the brain in numerous ways thus benefiting and improving learning in children.
