Jumped Out The Gym

The event was held for students K-5 with each grade level coming at their designated special time. I talked briefly with the students about the importance of a healthy heart and water. Next, I led the students in stretches and dance movements along with push-ups, sit-ups etc. to increase their heart rate and muscle endurance.

How did you accomplish your goals?

I accomplished my goals by getting the students active and willing to participate. Some students didn't want to at first, but when they saw his or her friends participating they started to as well. The students' response was very positive and energetic when it came to foods that are good and bad for you. They loved the dancing as well as doing the body exercises.
