Instructional Ideas

  • Collaborate with a physical education teacher on ways to improve this group activity
  • Have the PE instructor come in to discuss the physical health benefits of 60 minutes of activity and its effect on energy levels, body composition, the presence of illness and disease, etc.
  • As an alternative, have learners attempt to complete 60 minutes a day of activity for a week by themselves. Then, arrange learners in groups or partners the following week to complete the same task and ask them to compare and contrast the two weeks

Lesson Planet has helped me take ideas I have and make them more streamlined, creative and higher level. It is great to see how other teachers present the same topic in a multitude of ways!
