NFL Play 60 Challenge
Topics:
Physical Activity Participation
Every time our school has an assembly, we have students challenge staff members in different physical activities in front of the school body. Activities can range from jump roping, soccer kicking, football throwing, tennis rackets, push-ups. The physical challenge we usually pick is based on what unit of skills we are practicing in PE class. The most recent one was a push-up contest, where we selected the top boy and top girl who completed the most push-ups during the FITNESSGRAM testing. Our next one that we will be doing is a football throw and catch, as we are working on the NFL FLAG PE curriculum.

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

We will use it at every assembly or anytime there is a group of 5th graders (and other grades) in the bleachers.
