The Fuel Up To Play 60 Team wanted to get the school moving during class time with physical activity breaks. Student team members prepared physical activity sticks for teachers to utilize in their classrooms. Along with the sticks, they received a guide on how to do each physical activity in the classroom. The goal is to do a minimum of one stick per day and try to increase the number of sticks performed gradually each week.

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

We needed time to implement the activities with the common core subjects needed in each class. One activity was added for a minimal commitment to start and activities that could be added that also teach the common core were added to the list of options!
