Professional Development

active kidsClassroom Energizers Training

Classroom Energizers is an evidence-based intervention that increases elementary and secondary student physical activity levels. These short physical activity breaks integrate with academic concepts to reinforce classroom work and help refocus the students' attention on classroom tasks.

We offer an onsite 2-hour workshop for teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, and other school staff to learn and practice using Energizers in their own schools. For more information, download the Classroom Energizers flyer (371 K PDF) or contact Betsy Johnson (john3064@umn.edu; 218-259-1402).
