Recess Equipment for Every Classroom
The FUTP 60 Team put together equipment packs for every classroom in the building to give all students more options for healthy activities that can be done during recess. Each class has a bin of fun equipment now. Equipment supplied includes: Basketballs, Footballs & Flag football belts (the FUTP 60 sets) Playground balls and short and long jump ropes.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We talked about what equipment would be most useful to the different grade levels and put together packets of equipment that best fit each grade level. .

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

We put the equipment in bins labeled for each classroom and had each of the pieces of equipment labeled with a room number.

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

Not having the equipment disappear from classroom bins. We have the teachers bring the bins into their classrooms at the end of each day from the hallway and we had our students become educated on how to care for and bring the equipment back in after they use it.
