Physical Activity Participation
Students arrive at 7:00 am every morning and either run or walk inside the gym or outside around the track, depending on the weather. As the days go by, more and more students are asking to join this Running Club.

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

I am rewarding the students every week with charms that have the miles they have run or walked for the week.

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

The weather is bad at times and students cannot go outside to run, but I set up cones around the gym so students can run around them. As soon as the other students come in, the Running Club has to stop running because of the lack of space.
