Encourage your kids to run around and play, as according to a feature on Science Daily, physical activity may help nine- and 10-year-old kids improve their learning abilities.

In a study by Lauren Raine and her colleagues from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, two groups of children were asked to memorize places on a fictitious map.

Members of one group were in the top 30 percent of those measured for aerobic fitness, while those in the other group were in the lowest 30 percent. The researchers found that the top 30 percent and who had high levels of physical activity recalled the information they learned better than those in the other group.

Researchers conclude that improved physical fitness and better study methods which include guidance and testing may result in better academic performance in kids. So allow your children to join sports clubs in school, and at home, set aside time to sit down and help them with their lessons. A healthy body may result in a well-stimulated mind.
