In Fire Emblem Three Houses, Activity Points are going to govern how many activities you can take part in around the Monastery during your free roam periods. In this guide explaining everything you need to know about Fire Emblem Three Houses Activity Points, we'll be explaining how to increase your Activity Points, as well as the activities that use up your points.
Fire Emblem Three Houses Activity Points
When you're in the Monastery of Fire Emblem Three Houses with free time on your hands, a number will appear in the top of the screen. This indicator dictates how many Activity Points you have to work with during this instance of free time.
Committing to an activity with students will spend an Activity Point. So for example, if you choose to sit down and share a meal with your students, you'll have to use up an Activity Point because you're taking time to interact with your students.
Note however that completing quests on the Monastery grounds won't use up Activity Points. On top of this, using locations like the Greenhouse to grow plants and flowers also won't use up your Activity Points. As a general rule, if an activity involves you spending a dedicated amount of time with a student, it's probably going to use up an Activity Point.
Fire Emblem Three Houses Battle Activity Points
However it's not just activities around the Monastery that use up Activity Points in Fire Emblem Three Houses. When you've committed to a battle on Sunday, and find yourself choosing which battle to take part in, you'll again see the Activity Points at the top of the screen. This indicates how many battles you can take part in before the day completely elapses.
But not all battles use up Activity Points. If committing to a battle is going to use up an Activity Point, the bar at the top of the screen will flash when you hover over a battle. There's always one battle every week that doesn't use up an Activity Point, and it's a really good idea to use this battle to increase the levels of you lower rank units.

How to Replenish Motivation in Fire Emblem Three Houses
If you choose the correct students to partake in activities with you, you'll successfully raise their Motivation level. A high Motivation level is important for students after the weekend, because it means you have more points to spend when training them in a lecture on the following Monday.
So when, for example, you're selecting who you want to join you in the 'Share a Meal' event, pay attention to the Motivation levels of your own students. You can see the Motivation bar just above their profile, and the aim of the game is to have this bar as full as possible at all times.
Remember that when you're selecting who to join you in an activity, you can also see the students that will benefit most from partaking in an activity with you. This is denoted by an orange arrow pointing upwards next to their name on the selection screen. But remember that it's pointless wasting an activity on someone who already has a high Motivation level, even if they will benefit most from an activity like choir practice.
