Active Recess

Active recess involves purposefully designing the playground and recess activities to encourage physical activity for all students. It also involves including a minimum of 20 minutes of recess each day for students in elementary and middle school. Active recess incorporates activities on the grassy areas or fields, blacktop surfaces, and playground equipment. Active recess provides children with a guarantee of non-structured play each day,with equipment and supplies needed to be physically active on the playground. It provides some structure to recess and may include several activity stations scattered around the playground and green spaces.
