Brain Break Kits
- Cory Underhill, Frontier Elementary
- Success with Funds
Our Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassadors worked to design and create "brain break" kits for the K-5 classrooms. First they brainstormed simple, fun exercises and/or games that students could do quickly in class to energize their bodies and their brains. The students came up with lots of different ideas such as yoga stretches, jumping jacks, push-ups, jogging in place, acting like animals, etc. Then the students used "paw" cut-outs and glued them to colored pop-sickle sticks. Lastly, they put them in little buckets with Fuel Up to Play stickers on the side. Students delivered the "brain break" kits to the classrooms along with healthy snacks as we geared up for our spring testing time. The kits and the healthy snacks were a hit with both students and teachers!
