Walk this Way — Start a Walking Club

Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership,  Teamwork
The Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Leadership Council has worked diligently over the last two months to design and implement a Walking Club. Last week was the first week of implementation, and it was a great success! Students who are inactive at recess are consistently asked to join those walking to get them more active. Our student leaders have even included our younger students on the other playground by splitting up and leading them around their own playground.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The Student Leadership Council came up with ideas on when to host the Walking Club and what it would look like. As the advisor, my role was to help guide them on their decisions and to provide them with some ideas when they got stuck. The students developed their own marketing materials using the ideas they came up with, and were the ones to promote the idea to the students at our school.
