Time Out Fuels Classroom Performance

from Wildlife Promise

For kids these days, back to school sometimes means back indoors. In fact, the opposite should be the case—NWF has compiled vast research connecting the dots between classroom performance and time outdoors.

The new parent and teacher guide, called TIME OUT: Using the Outdoors to Enhance Classroom Performance shares the science behind developmental gaps, nutrition and physical activity implications, and offers solutions to connect the indoor generation back to nature.

The guide is available through NWF’s Be Out There campaign. The report also features Green Hour’s Top 10 ways to Be Out There — even after school starts!
