The Git Up Dance Challenge

Physical Activity Participation,  Teamwork
Our second-grade students learned to dance the "Git Up" in music class and in physical education. On October 18th all six classes met outdoors to film the dance challenge and "call out" our high school students to "dance back" to us! The high school accepted the challenge and students can't wait to see the video they send back to us!! They plan to film the dance for us during half time at this week's unified basketball game! This is just the beginning! We hope the high school will challenge middle school next!

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

We hope to build a connection with the other schools by holding friendly challenges throughout the school year!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The teachers worked together to get the students to learn the steps to the dance. Students dressed in western gear on the day of filming. The students were very excited to be filmed! I expect we can do more fun challenges to build community.
