Exercise and Learn about History

Exercise and Learn about History
by Ephraim, Bullis School Third Grade

Studies show kids who spend more time outside focus better than kids that don’t.  There is also evidence those kids who get outside more often and burn calories by exercising are healthier and not likely to become obese.  I think if you are healthy and better focused your success in school will increase.  Also, kids should go outside to have fun and interact with others.

Parks and historical landmarks are fun places to go to enjoy the outdoors and learn new things.  For example, the FDR Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, are two of my favorite landmarks to visit.  I hope that you will make a point to get outside every day to exercise, enjoy nature and interact with others because it will improve your health all the way around.
