Current Level of Activity ●The CDC recommends 60 minutes of activity/day for children and adolescents, that equals 420 minutes/week ●Our school currently has 30 minutes of recess, 5 days a week and 60 minutes of PE, once a week, totaling 210 minutes of activity per week ●That leaves 210 minutes per week, or 42 minutes per day, that children must account for outside of school Night, N. (2014). Moving and learning all day. [PowerPoint slides]. 420 min (recommended) -210 min (current) min (unaccounted for)
