Elementary school students use video games for fitness, health | Geek Therapy | Scoop.it

Northeast Elementary School recently received a grant to pay for three Nintendo Wii video game systems for students to use during indoor recess periods. The game systems are famous for the physical involvement they require from their players in games such as bowling, tennis, disc golf, baseball, basketball and dance, among others. The grant was from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas Foundation Healthy Habits for Life, and is offered to help schools combat childhood obesity.
