ANN ARBORThere's another burst of seat-bouncing, giggling and shouting in researcher Rebecca Hasson's simulated classroom at the University of Michigan as Hasson catches study participant Marcus Patton cheating at Sorry!

..

Marcus isn't having it. "How do you call that cheating?" demands Patton, an 11-year-old cyclone of energy.

..

Patton admits it's tough to sit still. Like millions of other U.S. middle and grade school kids he gets scant exercise during school because budget and time restraints have slashed recess and lunch periods.

..

Hasson, assistant professor at the U-M School of Kinesiology, seeks to remedy that problem by studying kids like Patton in a collaborative research project called Active Classroom. Partners include the School of Public Health Momentum Center, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, and School of Education.

..

Researchers hope to find ways to redesign classrooms and develop a curriculum to add in two-minute exercise breaks throughout the day"a prescription for physical activity"and incorporate the additional fitness as seamlessly as possible for teachers.

..

Clarke Fields, 9, and Patton, are between activity breaks now, meaning they'll play games, watch television or do something else sedentary between one of the 20 activity breaks. That's 40 minutes of exercise by the end of the school daybut still only two-thirds of the recommended 60 minutes for kids.

..

Hasson's physical activity study differs from others in that it focuses on the built and curricular environments rather than solely focusing on behaviors, nutrition and exercise.

..

Her initial findings are promising: By incorporating low-, medium- or high-intensity activity, kids may burn 100-300 more calories a day. She found they quickly refocused on school work, and none reported disliking the exercise.

..

Their enthusiasm shows. Patton and Fields snap to attention when Hasson shouts: "Ready for an activity break?"

..

The other essential parts of the research are "playable" hallways and classrooms. Hallways could be designed with pathways or longer routes and encourage room-to-room movement or activities like hopscotch. Classes might include furniture that teachers can store or rearrange and structures such as climbing walls.
