During February, teachers and caregivers across the country can participate in Active Classrooms Month by showcasing ways they integrate physical activity into learning and highlighting the positive impact movement has on young people! Special activities like webinars and live physical activity boosts during the month are intended to help all teachers and caregivers experiment and build their confidence in adding more movement into the classroom.
Join in the fun! Engage with us on social media (@Springboard2AS and @ActiveSchoolsUS) and follow #ActiveClassrooms for the latest – we encourage you to add your ideas and experiences to the conversation!
