Jensen, Eric
Educational Leadership, v58 n3 p34-37 Nov 2000

Movement increases heart rate and circulation, enhances spatial learning, provides a break from learning, allows cognitive maturation, stimulates release of beneficial chemicals, counteracts excessive sitting, and affirms the value of implicit learning. Energizing classroom strategies are outlined. (Contains 20 references.) (MLH)
