Exercise may provide an immediate academic boost for kids, research shows
Kids don’t have to be sitting at a desk to experience a boost in brain power. In fact, time spent out of the classroom may actually help kids get better grades.
According to new research, exercise and physical activity can help improve kids’ academic performance. Additionally, it has been shown to improve physical health and brain development in 6 to 18-year-old children.
The research, which comes in the form of a statement from the University of Exeter, shows that just about any form of physical activity can have a positive impact on kids' brains.
