Students helped to design sections of the movement hallways and then placed materials. We wanted to encourage movement throughout the day.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students met after school and designed a section of the three hallways that were created They created either a pathway, a hopscotch pattern or an agility ladder pattern.

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

We needed to find material that would stick and found classroom Sit Spots. After we got administration approval we created rules of the road. The team made a video explaining how to use the hallways appropriately.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students have commented how the hallways get their heart pumping. Teachers have reported that their classes have enjoyed using the hallways.
