Kids...want to be sharp enough to whip your best friend at the latest video game? Wish you could ignore your little brother long enough to get your homework done? Hoping to raise your grade in math?
Well, guess what? Exercise may be just the ticket. Did you know physical activity builds more than just your body? It builds better brains, too!
The best kind of exercise for your brain is the kind that makes you breathe hard, gets your heart pumping, and even makes you sweat. It's called aerobic exercise. And you don't have to be in gym class to do it. Playing outside after school, in-line skating, and even dancing can count as this type of exercise.
