This study explored how different intensities and types of physical activity are related to academic-related outcomes in children. It found that type and not intensity of physical activity was associated with better academic-related outcomes. Specifically, sport and short bouts of physical activity done in the classroom were associated with better focus in the classroom, which may lead to better academic achievement.
