It’s Challenge Week!

With each fit Challenge, students activate healthy habits through the meaningful practice of fit choices. The challenge concludes with students activating their friends and family to make fit choices too!

For this challenge, students will MOVE in a new way before and after school.  

Begin the challenge by selecting the Captivate slides showing movement activities.

Move Many Ways

Do a quick review Topic 5, MOVE Many Ways before introducing the challenge.

Your Challenge:
​MOVE a new way each day!

Students find different times and different ways to MOVE before and after school each day. Encourage them to be creative and try something like...

  • Stand up while doing homework.
  • Play a game of kick-the-can with your family.
  • Go for a bike ride with a friend.
  • Walk backwards around the block.

Do It!

MOVE a new way each day!

Prepare to track the challenge. How will you show student participation?

  • Students can write or draw their MOVE choices, or you may prefer to use the check-off sheet.
  • Recording participation can be as simple as polling students. You may opt to keep a list showing your students' MOVE choices.

Decide which challenge tracker (see options below) you will use.

Challenge Check-in

Check student progress by polling students to show participation each day until you are ready to wrap up the challenge.

Discuss the challenge with questions such as:

  • Stand up and act out your new MOVE if this challenge is easy for you. What makes it easy?
  • Stand up if the challenge is difficult for you. What makes it difficult?

Challenge Wrap Up

Lead a class discussion on the final day of your challenge:

  • What propelled you forward through the challenge? Did friends or family encourage you? Did you write down your goal to remind yourself to MOVE?
  • What held you back while attempting the challenge? Were you too tired to get off the couch? Did the weather make a difference in your move activities?

Congratulations!

Congratulate and/or recognize students for successfully completing the challenge. 

Challenge Others

Encourage students to challenge another person to do the MOVE challenge. Challenge friends, family, or teachers. Make it fun!
