Physical Activity Participation

Every Wednesday before school, students can hula-hoop, jump-rope or walk around the gym instead of sitting in the bleachers for 35 minutes.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

My student wellness team and I got together and decided on what kind of Play we wanted to call.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The students wanted more physical activity and brainstormed a list of possibilities.

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

The students really wanted to play dodge ball. I asked a lot of leading questions to get them to realize (without me being the one to say "no"), that this was probably not the best choice.
