Active Schools

Fizika is proud to be involved in the Active Schools movement. At Fizika, we know that Active Kids Learn Better.

  • Movement increases brain function.
  • Physical activity increases blood flow which brings more oxygen, water and glucose to the brain and improves concentration.
  • Physical activity also increases endorphins, which have a positive effect on mood.

If a child is sitting too long, they are missing out on vital movements that could help them learn. Classroom physical activity helps students feel better, work together as a team, reduce anxiety and maintain focus.

Classroom teachers can contribute to their students’ need for the nationally recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day while simultaneously teaching and reinforcing academic concepts.

Students at Fulton Elementary enjoy a physical activity break in their classroom.
