Voices for Healthy Kids

Physical Education Tool Kit

The benefits of physical education (PE) ring clear as a school bell. With PE, we can keep kids’ hearts healthy and their minds in gear to do their best at school. The fact is, active kids learn better. And the benefits don’t end there. Physical education has positive impacts on their physical, mental, and emotional health.
