Physical Activity Across the Curriculum (PAAC 3):Teacher vs. Remotely Delivered Classroom Physical Activity Breaks

PAAC 3 is designed to compare two methods of delivering short (~10 min) physical activity breaks that will occur during the regular school day for 3 years. Schools will be randomized to deliver physical activity breaks led by either the regular classroom teacher or by a remote instructor through a video in the classroom. Both delivery methods will promote a variety of whole body movements using large muscle groups. Schools will not be able to choose which delivery (regular teacher or remote instructor) they receive.
