Physical Activity Participation

Student H.F. has struggled with weight issues for many years. He was eager to start physical activity breaks to help his weight loss. He currently battles high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes. He used a pedometer to count his steps. When the student walked a mile, he was happy and flashed a big smile. I said it was worth it to see his smile as he accomplished his goal of a mile per week.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our Program Advisor walked with the student each day to help encourage his success with his physical activity. Both teacher and student were successful with their goals of losing weight.
