Schools across the country have found benefits to using juggling in their classrooms. During extensive academic work periods, physically active study breaks help students learn better.  In a growing number of classrooms throughout the country, students keep scarves or beanbags in their desks for “juggling breaks.”  Students practice when their teachers allow, and learn at their own pace.

Learning to juggle develops patience, persistance, and self-discipline. Students also build self-confidence as they achieve goals through non-competitive play where the only opponent is gravity. As they advance to juggling skills with partners students improve their interpersonal and cooperative problem solving skills.

Studies have also shown that the tracking and fine motor skills learned by juggling can improve reading and handwirting as well as sequencing skills used in math and science.

Real Physics in Real Time!

Juggling offers students a hands-on experience with the world they live in. Unlike cartoons and video games, juggling won't let you bend the rules! Then when they study motion and physics the concepts will be more tangible.
