    Physical Activity as the Vehicle for Learning

    With Health and Physical Education, children and youth have a unique opportunity to move their bodies, engage their minds and discover the joy of movement for healthy, active living.


    Here are a few highlights from the video that express how children and youth learn by doing:

    “You get the kids active, you get them engaged, you get them learning.” — Petja Taivassalo

    “I would do physical activities in the classroom and all of a sudden the students would be awake, they’d be engaged, they’d be excited.” — Natasha Davey
