; METs, metabolic equivalents. Table  2 shows the quartiles of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA; ≥3 METs) by each participant characteristic. A difference as great as 5000 steps was observed between the average daily step count between the groups with the highest and lowest amount of MVPA

; Woods et al., 2015 ). Research on differences in these constructs between boys and girls has revealed that boys tend to be higher in physical activity level during recess (e.g.,  Ridgers et al., 2012 ) especially moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA; Woods et al., 2012 , 2015 ). Boys also

substitution technique has already been used in a number of studies to examine the relationship between time-use behaviors and health and well-being. For example, reallocation away from moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) to sleep, sedentary behavior, or light physical activity (LPA) has been
