    Hi forum,
    is it okay to translate this as "descansos activos" or is there another word I should use instead of descansos?
    "She will have five 3-minute active breaks."

    An active break means the student gets to stand up and walk around (for students who have trouble sitting still or paying attention).

    Descansos is not bad.
    One could also use

    pausas activas/con actividad
