Making in door recess more motivating
Monroe Elementary School students and staff have been making use of indoor recesses and brain brakes in the classroom using materials from Wisconsin - Fuel Up to Play 60. "ACTIVITY JENGA," pictured here, is a favorite where students are challenged to "Hop around like a bunny", "Balance on your left foot for a count of 10," "Pretend to lift a car" and MORE. What wonderful ways to remain active and healthy amidst COLD Wisconsin Winters. Playing JENGA along with the brain break cards and over sized activity ball are three activities rotating through our classrooms to help us be active when we can't be outdoors!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our students worked together to create the activity Jenga, writing the prompts on the puzzle pieces. Students then worked with adult teachers on a rotating schedule to teach these new games in each of the classrooms.
