Physical exercise during academic lessons can help boost test scores, study suggests

Students who take part in physical exercises – like star jumps or running on the spot – during academic lessons do better in tests than classmates who choose sedentary learning, research has shown. Incorporating physical activity has a significant effect on pupils’ educational outcomes during the lesson and a smaller effect on overall educational outcomes, according to a University College London (UCL)-led study says.
Activities can include using movement to signify whether a fact is true or false in a lesson, or jumping on the spot a certain number of times to answer a maths question, the report finds.
