Push-Up Mats

Underwood Elementary received Funds for FUTP 60, which were used to purchase push-up mats for the physical education department. The kids loved the new activity. Students are always excited to learn new ways to become more active and get others involved. The wellness team from last year discussed the physical activity equipment that could be added or updated if we were to receive the grant. This was something the wellness team felt excited about. The staff helped the students use them for the first time during FitnessGram testing.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Underwood Student Council helped with the planning of the push-up mats and the students were able to help spread the word about Fuel Up to Play 60 with the push-up mats.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Push-ups are an exciting part of the lesson plan now with the mats.
