Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership,  Teamwork

I have introduced Flag Football for 3rd- 5th Graders at our school and they love it. Thanks to Fuel Up to Play 60 and the Midwest Dairy Council for supplying us with belts and footballs for our school. This program would not be possible with out the generous support from them and I am glad to have them on our side.

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

I will introduce it to my students every year and grow the program from there. I go out and play with them and they love that. I also enjoy getting the exercise and playing Flag Football with my students.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We have teachers coming out and playing with us because the kids are begging their teachers to come out and be a part of the team.
