After starting Jump Rope for Heart, several of my students went online to accept a Challenge. The Challenges were 1) to choose water over sugary beverages, 2) get 60 minutes of exercise a day and 3) to eat a fruit or vegetable at every meal. They signed a poster under which Challenge they've accepted. They will come up to me at lunch to show me their trays with fruits and vegetables and/or water. Some of them will bring water bottles to PE. They have also told me after school activities they participate in to get an hour of exercise a day.

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

We will continue to talk about how important these choices are for a healthy lifestyle.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students will choose to get the fruit or vegetable in the lunch line.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We talked about the benefits of each Challenge and specific ways to reach these goals.
