Integrating Physical and Relaxation Exercises in the Classroom

 

 

The following resources are my collection of physical and relaxation exercises for the classroom. I believe that the mind and the body work perfectly in the learning process. Physical and relaxation exercises should be integrated into every lesson. It helps  students learn and is great for our health. I am sure you will find some of the sources more challenging than others.  Try them out to see what suits you and your class. Try my lesson plan and WebQuest on Nutrition and Health
