Capture the Football at Recess

Michele Higgins,   Westbrook Middle School
Physical Activity Participation

Our Fuel Up to Play 60 team organized a "Capture the Football" team during recess for all grades. We made 2 fields and separated each grade into 4 teams based on their homerooms. They 2 homerooms battled it out in a "Capture the Football" game. The majority of students at our school participated in this event, and we had a ton of fun!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We want to get more students active at recess, so by doing this play, we had the majority of all students participating in the games. Most students that did not participate watched the game, so at least they walked down to the field and were standing instead of sitting down and playing on their phones.
