Educators know that the benefits of physical activity are multi-dimensional, affecting learning, health, and emotional wellbeing. Besides encouraging healthy habits, physical activity reduces impulsivity and helps kids regulate moods and maintain a positive mindset. Less frustration means calmer classrooms and better concentration. Physical activity also builds emotional and physical self-confidence and helps kids try — and learn — something new. This kit contains imaginative and fun animal-themed physical activities and games that are easily adaptable to various age levels. It also includes safety tips and discussion points. Educators can use this kit in conjunction with the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum and its ancillary programs or as a freestanding program in schools, YMCAs, afterschool programs, and summer camps.
