Football Recess at Huntley
Using our NFL Flag Football supplies, our FUTP 60 team planned and taught football stations at recess. Since it was during football season, students wore Packer jerseys or a FUTP 60 t-shirt. Students advertised the event on the morning announcements and made posters. Some of the stations included, flag football, flag tag, throwing a football at a target, obstacle course, and kicking off a tee.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students made the posters and staff hung them up around school. Students designed the lesson plan for the stations and I organized the supplies in buckets for them to grab and set up.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished our goal to promote being active at recess. We had 12 stations with students playing at all of them.

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

Getting all the supplies outside when I teach right up to the recess bell. I got some help from other staff and we were able to pull it off. Student leaders returned all equipment to the gym.
