PHYSICAL EDUCATION & HEALTH

Physical Education/Health
The CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommends that children and adolescents ages six through 17 years should achieve a minimum of 1 hour of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity each day, and activities that strengthen bones and build muscles at least 3 days a week.
These three types of physical activities should include:


• Aerobic: Most of the 60 minutes or more per day should be either moderate- or vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity such as walking, running, or anything that makes their heart beat faster.


• Muscle-strengthening: As part of their 60 minutes or more of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include muscle-strengthening physical activity, such as climbing or doing push-ups, on at least 3 days a week.


• Bone-strengthening: As part of their 60 minutes or more of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include bone-strengthening physical activity, such as jumping or running, on at least 3 days a week.
