Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership,  Teamwork
Students at our school (K - 5) get to select a club geared toward their interest. Students attend the club they select 3 Fridays out of the month for 30 minutes. My club is Basketball Club. I have 25 - 30 third, fourth, and fifth grade students attend my club. During our club time, we work on developing our basketball skills as well as working together and learning the importance of teamwork. Students will enjoy a variety of basketball games and activities but most importantly they will discuss the value of staying active and how it relates to our overall health.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Teachers developed a slide show for each of the clubs offered and students were able to select the club in whcih they wanted to participate.
