Fitness Kickoff at Recess

My FUTP 60 team chose seven stations to set up at recess that would get their classmates moving during their 20-minute recess time. They had a rainbow run, playground challenge, quarterback throw, football kick, ladder run, hula hoop challenge, and a jump rope challenge. They managed each station and kept their classmates moving. We had over 100 students attempt the challenge at recess and over 70 completed all seven stations and earned an FUTP 60 prize!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We made a list of ideas. The team helped set them up outside and each managed the stations. They led their peers and some adults through the stations and after it was all done, they cleaned up and we talked about how it went.

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

We will be doing activities during recess during certain times of the year. Some will be inside and some will be outside.
