Physical Exercise for Kids: Program to Increase Cognitive Health
The ACTIVATE™ Physical Exercise Program has 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.
The Physical Exercise Program is a Group Activity
More than 100 different physical exercise for kids 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.
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.
