Physical Exercise Programs to Increase Cognitive Health
The ACTIVATE™ Physical Exercise Programs have been scientifically designed to increase neuroplasticity and exercise the same cognitive skills as the computer program. Designed by Dr. Jinxia Dong, a former Chinese National Gymnast, and a professor of sports studies at Peking University, the ACTIVATE™ program employs a variety of fun and challenging athletic skills that start off simple and grow increasingly complex.
There are two versions of the Physical Exercise Programs:
- For Schools: More than 100 different exercises and activities for groups of 20 students or more, in lessons of 20, 30 or 45 minutes in duration. The program includes a variety of team-building games, incorporates social intelligence skills, and emphasizes cooperation over competition. Written for either physical education teachers or general classroom teachers, the curriculum includes a 200-page handbook with floor charts, diagrams, and step-by-step instruction on getting the most out of the program.
- For the Home: More than 100 different exercises and activities designed for a single parent or coach and 1-5 children. The home version comes with video tutorials and easy diagrams make running the exercises a snap. You can view the full schedule from the home page and run the exercises in any order you’d like.
Built to the highest standards for K-3 physical education:
Our program was designed in consultation with physical education experts at the school, district and state levels – so we were able to create a program that reflects the highest standards for K-3 physical education. Our program can be used on its own to fulfill most state physical education requirements for grades K-3. Plus, each of our lessons has been mapped to the National Association for Sports and Physical Education’s National Standards for Physical Education.
