Abstract

Physical education is a fading subject in the U.S. school system regardless of the infinite positive effects that movement provides. Consequently, students have fewer opportunities to be active throughout the day which leads to major health concerns amongst our youth. A Case Study: Physical Activity in the Classroom is designed to see how incorporating physical activity into an eleventh grade Health 2 curriculum would affect the students. For 2 ½ weeks the teacher incorporated activity breaks that consisted of basic movements and lasted 2-3 minutes. Information and findings will be gathered through pre/post student surveys and pre/post informal teacher interviews.
