Chicken Dance

Sara Gladson,   Martensdale-st. Marys Cmty School
Physical Activity Participation

We have 84 minute blocks of class during the day. During 7th grade 2nd block, we have a dance break. Students love doing the Chicken Dance. It is a lot of fun watching the students flap their wings.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students chose the song and I, as the teacher, provided the sound system and the time to dance.

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

There is a half bell that rings during each block. It is a 5 minute passing period for split block. During each class, we either have an organized physical activity or students are given the opportunity to take a couple loops around the courtyard.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Student focus increases during class when students know that they have a break coming up.
