Today’s elementary students have many demands placed upon them in the classroom.  These academic and physical demands can be hard for elementary aged students. Many students do not find as much success, due to their focus or stamina. The incorporation of the standing desks will provide students with the choice on which position is best for them to learn. Students will be able to stand, lean, and use the footrest to swing, move in place or fidget in general. This project will help not only students who are having challenges due to over-activity, but also all students in the classroom. Research shows that adults are allowed to fidget throughout the day, while elementary students do not always have that choice in the traditional classroom. Incorporating standing desks will give students the freedom to fidget and create positive outcomes for all learners.
