Student Ambassador Active Recess
- Candice Alvarez, Copper View Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership
At Copper View, we have had structured recess for three years, but this year we decided to have students be in charge of the zones during recess. We had the Pima County Health Department come out and train our student leaders in how to run the zones and deal with any conflict that may occur. The student leaders are now in charge to teach the new recess games, which change monthly. The go into the classrooms and share how to play the games and what is required during active recess. They are also in charge of setting up the equipment for lunch recess and are in a zone during recess to help students and engage them in the games!
