ABSTRACT
The article discusses research which focuses on the importance of recess in school. The study revealed that the absence of recess may cause students to misbehave during class time. The research showed that children who had about a 15-minute recess during school behaved better in class than those who did not get a break. According to Olga Jarrett of the International Play Association (IPA), recess is good for children because it provides exercise.
