I think students should have longer recess because recess is great for your health, it helps kids become better students, and recess helps kids learn to like school more. If you disagree about recess, it's a free country so you can disagree with me if you want, but let me show you why I believe kids need more recess.
Recess is important because it is good for children's health. When kids run around at recess, they are exercising. If you think phys ed is healthy, you can have that same health benefit because recess is similar to phys ed. Exercising is so important because there are too many overweight kids who might get diseases or even die because they don't exercise.
Recess can help kids become better students. It can also help teach bullies how to share and be nice. Most bullies have problems sharing. If there was more recess, then there would be time to teach bullies these skills like sharing. For example, some bullies hit people while playing basketball. If there was more recess, they could calm down and be nicer. The teachers would also have more time to teach the bullies how to play nicely.
Recess makes students enjoy school, which is important. Imagine a student who has to work for the seven hours of school straight without a break. That student would feel miserable and hate school. For a lot of students who like recess, recess makes them enjoy school. Without recess they might slack on classwork and homework because there wouldn't be anything fun for them all day long.
I strongly think that recess should be longer. Without recess, school would be atrocious! Instructors, please expand recess time!
