Daily Physical Activity

In October, 2005, the Ministry of Education announced that elementary students in grades 1 to 8 would be required to take part in a minimum of 20 minutes of sustained moderate to vigorous daily physical activity (DPA), as part of the government's comprehensive Healthy Schools Plan.

As the policy explains, daily physical activity must be scheduled during instructional time and can be conducted in a variety of locations, including classrooms, the outdoors, the gymnasium, and multipurpose areas.

This module supports and expands on information presented in the Daily Physical Activity: Teacher Resource Guides and provides ideas on how to incorporate daily physical activity into the school day.
