Dance Walking!

Our first all-school physical activity break was "Dance Walking!" It was a great way to start the day. Our FUTP 60 team split up into classrooms to lead each group with one lap around the room and then in the hallway.  Two members introduced the activity and played the music over the school intercom. We played the "Wacha Wacha World Cup" song and all had a great time. Five min. in and out!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We originally scheduled this for the previous afternoon, but the intercom is in the principal's office and she had an important conference at that time (last minute). So, we rescheduled for the next morning and it became a great way to start the day.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The entire school spent five minutes moving to music together, which created unity and many smiles.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

My FUTP 60 team practiced and led this activity. When an obstacle got in the way, our school secretary helped the student leaders reschedule for the next morning. I got them started and off they went!
