Schools are the most strategic and practical place for students to learn about and practice being physically active. This CDC guide describes strategies for promoting and planning classroom physical activity. It also provides a list of practical resources to help school staff implement these strategies. These strategies are important because less than one third of children and adolescents in the United States are getting the recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day.
