Student Led Activity Breaks at Sunset Hills

By
Andrew Mantzaris,   Sunset Hills Elementary School
Play:
In-Class Physical Activity Breaks — Good For Mind and Body
Topics:
Student Leadership
A few students led student activity breaks within their classes with brief guidance from me, giving them ideas. This was over the course of a few weeks and hopefully will continue throughout the rest of the year. It was a great collaboration that helped the students try something out of their comfort zone and still promoting physical activity when not in P.E.

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

Pushing teachers to continue it. Give data supporting the activity and the benefits to behavior and changes that happen.

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

Time constraints were overcome with teacher support and student motivation

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Communication during the process. Giving tips and feedback to ensure success.
