Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey last week signed a proposal that requires schools to expand recess for young students, a measure that aims to give kids more time for unstructured play.

The measure requires schools to provide an additional recess on top of the lunch period. The proposal passed with wide bipartisan support.

The new requirements will apply to kindergarten through 3rd grade this year, and 4th and 5th grades next year. They cover regular district schools and charter schools.
