Charles Wright Academy Become Fitness Stars!
Charles Wright Academy has recently partnered with their local extension program, Michigan State University Extension, to create some physical activities and games that would encourage kids to be physically active. They also wanted to make sure kids learned about the importance of nutrition. So they worked with MSUE to create videos that their teachers could use as well as for MSUE employees to use when out in the field teaching nutrition and physical activity. The students have enjoyed it and feel like they are fitness movie stars!!

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

Because we are working with MSUE, we are able to not only showcase the students' ideas in the school, but state wide. MSUE nutrition staff use these videos as ways to add physical activity into their classrooms as well as showing teachers how they can have a physical activity break that doesn't cost a lot or take up much time. We are already in talks to add more next year with new students.
