Action Based Learning is developed on research that supports the link between movement and academic performance. The Action Based Learning LAB targets the young developing brain, ages 4-7 years. However the Action Based Learning LAB benefits all students for remediation and enrichment. It combines motor skills, balance and visual development with academics to anchor learning through physical activity. Action Based Learning is now a worldwide movement.

Over the past several years, schools in San Diego Unified have developed and implemented Action Based Learning LABS. Each school has a designated room or space and contains equipment specific to the LAB. Classroom teachers are encouraged to utilize the lab with their students on a consistent basis. Through the program, students are LEARNING TO MOVE and MOVING TO LEARN!
