10 Plus 10 Healthy Challenge

By
Mr. Hershey,   Copopa Elementary School
Play:
Topics:
Access to Healthy Foods,  Physical Activity Participation

All students, K through 4, were challenged to try 10 new foods. They had to be fresh fruits or vegetables. They also had to try 10 new physical activities. They could play a game they never played or make one up. They were given a form to keep track of their progress that had to be signed by their parents when finished. To advertise, we made a mannequin challenge video inviting kids to join us. Parents were encouraged to take the challenge with their kids.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

They had to take home a sheet to be signed and parents were invited to take the challenge with their kids. Parents normally do the food shopping, so they were automatically involved in that part.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We advertised with a mannequin challenge video, discussions in class, bulletin board and the paper sent home. Classroom teachers were asked to share the video with their classes.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

I will continue to discuss it from time to time to see how many are still doing it and try to encourage others to start.
