Health benefits of active travel
About this activity
Suitable for all pupils. Supports the PSHE and Citizenship National Curriculum.
Put together a lesson or assembly adapted to the needs and level of your class to teach them about the health benefits of active travel.
Children and young people should engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. This could include travelling actively to school, which improves the air quality around your school and has health benefits for your pupils. You could use this as the basis for your lesson.
Why not host an assembly focusing on the health benefits of active travel? Or you could incorporate the message into a science lesson with a focus on health.
This activity could be incorporated into the environmental benefits of active travel activity. See Resources for more inspiration and lesson ideas.
