Studies show that children who have exposure to green spaces have improved attention spans and memory. In fact, during a one-year study, children who had significant exposure to green spaces experienced a decrease in inattentiveness and a 5% increase in their working memories. Research also suggests that children who have exposure to green spaces at school produce better test scores.*
Encourage your kids to spend less time watching television and playing on computers, and more time outside. If your child’s school does not offer green spaces, consider asking their teacher if you can donate some plants to incorporate some green space into the classroom.
