The purpose of this study was to determine if brain breaks influence behavioral disruptions in second grade students. The measurement tool used during this study was self-developed for conducting observations on the students. Average calling out behavioral disruptions for each of the brain breaks were compared, but the difference among them were not statistically significant. Further research on this topic with a larger sample size and control group would be beneficial to determine the effects of brain breaks on behavioral disruptions in second grade students.
