This year there's been some big changes to recess at several Albuquerque elementary schools - and students say it's all for the better.
A new program called Playworks started this year in seven schools. So far, bullying is down and physical activity is up.
Recess at Griegos Elementary School has changed a lot since last year. Students still get to choose what they want to do during their break, but now, it's recess with a purpose.
It's goal driven. It's simple and the kids love it.
