Student Leaders Improve Recess
- Megan Wiecek, Calvert Elementary
- Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership
Recess times were not being utilized by a large number of students for actual physical activity. Our FUTP 60 team organized an assembly for the school to introduce different activities that were unique and fun for each grade level. We focused on implementing activities for small numbers that were easy for students to organize and monitor. We have seen increased active participation during recess times and have even gained administrative support in returning to a model of two activity times per day, with one session of teacher-directed activity and one student-choice recess break.
