Movement, exercise, and hydration

"I call exercise "Miracle Gro" for the brain.  Exercise keeps brain cells healthy in a way that playing chess and other highly cognitive activities do not."
~Dr. John Ratey

Research has shown how important exercise is in a child's Brain development.  Team 16 will be learning about this all year and will be participating in daily movement breaks several times a day.  I highly recommend that students bring a water bottle to school that they can leave on their desks.  Hydration is so important for a student to stay focused and engaged after lots of physical activity.

As some experts will say...."Exercise makes you smarter." Team 16 will explore and research this statement and come up with supporting details throughout the year.

Brain Fitness here we come!
