The Benefits of Exercise in the Classroom Effects of Exercise on Learning and Education With the problem of childhood obesity looming, finding ways to increase our children’s physical activity levels is becoming increasingly important. Even so, lowering our children’s body fat percentages is just one small aspect of the bigger picture. Physical activity has a “positive influence on memory, concentration, and classroom behavior.” Exercise Can Improve Students’ Mental Health.
Dr. Ratey’s research also shows that exercise can be the best defense against a lot of the common mental health issues that students struggle with. Stress.
Physical exercise and academic achievement. Studies suggest that physical exercise yields shortand long-term benefits on achievement in the classroom. For instance, one experiment found that a 20 minute session of walking boosted children’s subsequent performance on tests of reading, spelling, and arithmetic (Hillman et al 2009a). Neurotrophins assure the survival of neurons in areas responsible for learning, memory, and higher thinking.
Physical activity has benefits beyond improved grades, too. Basch extrapolates current research and connects physical activity to absenteeis. Exercise strengthens both the prefrontal cortex (which is involved in executive functioning) and the hippocampus (which plays a key role in memory and learning).
In this way, exercise supports our ability to think creatively, make decisions, focus and retrieve key information. Besides strengthening the cardiovascular and muscular systems and lowering the risk of many diseases, research suggests that physical activity also positively impacts the brain and improves cognition, mood, attention and academic achievement in students. The effect on math scores, perceptions of the program and daily physical activity levels were then compared to a control group. Students participating in the exercise increased math test scores and rated themselves more confident and positive about their math abilities. Physical activity is not only essential for healthy growth and development, it’s also important to learning.
Research shows that physical activity whether it’s team sports, bike riding, swimming at the beach or playground games has positive effects on the brain and on school performance. In addition to its general effects on physical and mental well-being, regular physical activity may be linked to improved concentration and learning abilities. Regular trips to the gym are great, but don’t worry if you can’t find a large chunk of time to exercise every day.
Any amount of activity is better than none at all. To reap the benefits of exercise, just get more active throughout your day — take the stairs instead of the elevator or rev up your household chores. Consistency is key.
