NEW CITY, N.Y. -- Students and teachers at Woodglen Elementary School in New City got a recent lesson in the role of physical activity in everybody's well-being.

On March 4, students and teachers conducted an experiment to take "brain breaks" of physical activity during the day. Students were able to get up and move around before delving back into their lessons.

Woodglen officials said the day reminded all of the "vital" connection between physical activity, learning and health. And they are giving out some tips on the Clarkstown Central School District website , including that 60 minutes of physical activity is critical for children and teens.

And, officials note, moving around helps students do better in school, too.
