This course is for physical education and classroom teachers who want to help their students become physically fit and in turn, active learners. Teachers will be provided a wealth of information and practical activities for movement-supported learning. This course is designed to meet the objectives identified in the SHAPE Standards. These national standards are embedded in the activities of the course. Participants will be asked to make connections between their work and these standards or the standards of their own states. Physical exercises such as spinning, crawling, rolling, tumbling, swinging, and jumping strengthen those areas of the brain that are related to mental concentration, planning, and decision making while aerobic activity seems to assist in memory.
