    NASPE Guidelines 
     
    In addition to K-5 physical education classes, it is recommended that classroom teachers incorporate movement into various lessons. Daily recess is also an important activity time. These guidelines will help students avoid sedentary lifestyles and form habits that include activity on a daily basis.
     
             1.   Children should accumulate at least 60 minutes, and up to
                    several hours of age-appropriate physical activity on all,
                    or most days of the week. This daily accumulation should
                    include moderate and vigorous physical activity with the
                    majority of the time being spent in activity that is
                    intermittent in nature.
     
             2.  Children should participate in several bouts of physical activity
                   lasting 15 minutes or more each day.
     
             3.  Children should participate each day in a variety of age-
                   appropriate physical activities designed to achieve optimal
                   health, wellness, fitness, and performance benefits.
     
             4.  Extended periods (periods of two hours or more) of inactivity
                  are discouraged for children, especially during daytime hours.
