Transcript of Pros and Cons of Recess in Schools
Furthermore, the upkeep of playground equipment grows expensive, using valuable funds. Pros Recess is a necessary energy outlet. When children sit for long periods of time, they build up surplus energy. If children don’t get breaks when needed, learning declines and symptoms shown are: fidgeting, restlessness, waning concentration, off-task behavior. Only after using up this surplus energy through active play can students return to learning and are able to focus. Pros Everyone benefits from a
break. As far back as 1885 and 1901 the research
is quite clear on this: Both children and
adults learn better and more quickly when
their efforts are distributed (breaks are
included) than when concentrated (work
is conducted in longer periods). Movement increases the capacity of
blood vessels, allowing for the
delivery of oxygen, water, and
glucose (“brain food”) to the brain.
This optimizes the brain’s
performance! Conclusion Although there are some important factors to consider such as safety and time management, we believe the outdoors is the best place for children to practice emerging physical skills, to experience the pure joy of movement, and to burn the most calories. Research has even shown that children
who are physically active in school
are more likely to be physically
active at home. Moreover, children who
don’t have the opportunity to be active
during the school day don’t
usually compensate during
