Recess helps kids unwind during the school day, but it’s much more than just a time to exercise. We talk to two recess “specialists” about the mental as well as the physical benefits of recess, and learn about some recess activities that help a child be more creative, more social as well as more physically active.


  • Dr. Gail Gross, psychologist specializing in child development and families, author of How to Build Your Baby’s Brain and The Only Way Out is Through
  • Dan DiSorbo, co-author and illustrator of Recess: From dodgeball to double-dutch: classic games for players of today
