Physical Activity Participation

At Maple Grove Elementary, K-5 students have the opportunity to run or walk laps at recess. This is has been a healthy way to get students to participate in physical activity. All participants get a necklace where they store their shoe charms. Each time a student fills a punch card they are allowed to pick out a charm. The kids enjoy showing off their shoe charms while reaching fitness goals.

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

One challenge Maple Grove faces is the lack of parent-volunteers to help keep track of laps. A solution has been to allow the students to be more responsible for their own laps
