Play: In-Class Physical Activity Breaks — Good For Mind and Body


  • Physical Activity Participation

Thanks to Fuel Up to Play 60, we were able to incorporate physical activity into our daily routine. Our kids love to exercise and play. They get their heart rates up with cardio exercises and games. They have smiles on their faces and giggles can be heard the entire time.

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

We plan on using the items we purchased with this grant for many years to come. We have a great foundation set and plan to build upon it year after year.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen increased physical activity and more of a focus on brain breaks.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished our goals by working collaboratively with our administration and staff.
