Staying Fit While On Break!

Aim for 60 Minutes!

60 minutes of physical activity every day is healthy for your body and mind! Minutes can be broken up throughout the day. Some easy ways to help you stay active are: going for a walk/Pokemon go, riding your bike, playing basketball, roller skating, even simple chores about the house like vacuuming, sweeping, and putting things away help to raise your heart rate. Staying active also boosts your immune system so you are less likely to get sick!

2 Week Physical Education Log

Dear students and family members,

The physical education team at our school is working with resources from OPENPhysEd.org to help you stay physically active and healthy while our schools are closed. In order to meet physical education goals during this time students must be physically active for 60 minutes each day. Use this physical activity log to record your activity time.

Remember, activity time doesn’t have to happen all at once. You can add up your total activity throughout the day to equal 60 minutes. Students, at the end of each day ask a family member to sign next to the day’s total activity. Then, return the finished log when school is back in session!

The Importance of Being Active

Physical activity has also been associated with psychological benefits in young people by improving their control over symptoms of anxiety and depression. Similarly, participation in physical activity can assist in the social development of young people by providing opportunities for self-expression, building self-confidence, social interaction and integration.
