To provide children with more activity breaks during their school day, we recruited sports exercise and media students from Oregon State University to produce an exercise DVD called Brain Breaks: Classroom Fitness for Children. The short segments of physical activity breaks in the DVD are demonstrated by OSU sports exercise students, OSU student athletes, and local school children. They can all be done in a classroom setting. All the segments were filmed in the KVBR Studio, a student-run television station on the Oregon State University campus. They include include stretching and flexibility, strengthening and aerobic moves such as jumping in place.
