This session will describe the current rates of physical activity among children and adolescents and the importance of physical activity to health, learning, and social behaviors. We will focus on physical activity recommendations and how to reduce screen time in afterschool settings, using physical activity as a part of homework help or academic activities, and how to get kids to move during structured and unstructured play time. The session will also present alternatives for withholding physical activity time for misbehavior and the science behind why this is counterproductive.
