Ultimate Challenge Practice
Our FUTP 60 team is planning to submit a dance for the Ultimate Challenge Contest. The dance we are working on includes several different movements that engage the students in physical activity that can be completed as an in-class physical activity break. The goal is to offer movement breaks to students so that they are able to better focus during the time spent reading.

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

The biggest challenge we encountered is encouraging my FUTP 60 team to take on the leadership role. We spent a lot of time discussing the characteristics that make a good leader. These include making sure to be clear with instruction, loud enough for all to hear, and encouraging to those participating.
