Physical activity has numerous health and academic benefits for children. PE classes offer a dedicated time for children to be active, but most yield less than 50% of class time in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). Improving the quality of PE instruction increases children’s daily MVPA without taking time away from other subjects. Learn about best-practice strategies for increasing MVPA during PE as well as policy approaches that support teachers’ ability to provide quality PE instruction.
