Physical Activity Participation
We realized our afternoon learning block from 11:55 to 2:05 was too long for students to stay focused. So we planned an afternoon body break between 12:45 and 1:00 and it's made a world of difference for out kids to stay focused on their classwork.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

At first my students were skeptical and reluctant to participate, but now that they've started, they are into it and are enjoying the challenges.
