Fitness Obstacle Race
Using our FUTP 60 Fitness Kit, my student team helped put together an obstacle race at lunchtime in the gym. Students raced in teams of 4. FUTP 60 items were handed out as door prizes for participants. Students could compete any number of times. They ran through ladders, over mini hurdles, did pushups on a stability ball, jumped rope and passed and caught a football. Pictures were posted to Twitter and Facebook. Everyone got FUTP 60 stickers.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students gathered at lunch to plan portions of the course. My student leaders demonstrated the aspects of the course and helped hand out stickers for the participants. One student took pictures. They all helped with starting and resetting aspects of the course.

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

We will have another All Abitlites competition in January centered around Cup Stacking. Students will play the event, make posters and advertise. We will use some of our funds from our Smoothie Cart to purchase prizes. We also have some FUTP 60 wrist bands from last year to give out.
