The purpose of this study was to determine if there was an effect on first grade student behavior based on the amount of break time they were given throughout the day. Break time in these instances was considered to be recess or cultural arts time such as physical education or art. Data was collected over a three month time period to see if there was a correlation between student behavior and the amount of break time they were given throughout the day. The participants in this study were twenty first grade students who were in the same general education classroom. Analysis of the data suggested there was not a significant relationship between student behavior in first grade and the loss of break time during the school day.
