Few studies discussed how children use the campus space and how the campus attributes influence their physical activities. In this study, we used Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS training and sports tracking watches accompanied with self reported questionnaire, which included respondent's demographic data, recess activity record and 7-day physical activity record. We collected the space and physical activity data, and examined which part of the campus was preferred by children to stay and engage moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA). Ten students from an elementary school in Hsinchu were selected to attend this survey, and the recording period was a certain 10-minurcs recess between their classes. The result measured by the sports tracking watches showed children's longest staying time was in the volleyball court but the questionnaire showed they spent most of their time in the basketball court. Children preferred being outdoor and occupied 92% of their overall testing time. In addition, children who have a sing le purpose would spend half of their time in that particular place and appeared MYPA. During the testing period, children showed 50% time of MYPA mainly in the volleyball court. When examine the relationship between after school leisure activities and physical activity, the frequency of observing plants and animals have positive relation to low physical activity staying time; the frequency of doing ball activities have positive relationship with MYPA, especially when playing badminton.
