Create an Activity Plan (Gr. 4-6)Have children identify their schedules and modify the list to add physical activity to their week. Walking to destinations is a great way to add physical activity to a busy schedule. Create a week-long calendar that breaks each day down by the hour between 5 a.m. and 9 p.m. Have children:
- Fill in activities and obligations.
- Highlight time slots that already have physical activity built in (soccer practice, walking to school, walking the dog).
- Identify time slots available for physical activity.
- Add physical activity of their choice to days where it is lacking.
- Identify ways they could add physical activity to time they have committed to other obligations (i.e. walk to church instead of drive).
- Share their calendar with their parents/guardians and include at least one family physical activity per week to incorporate into the Activity Plan.
Ride to SchoolWhen you go back to school, start your own bike train! Ride to school daily with pride that you are not using fossil fuels to move about your community, you are not creating traffic, you are inspiring others and getting good exercise to boot. Encourage your friends and neighbors to ride with you. If you need a parent, recruit one. Expand your horizons to inspire friends to ride together to local gathering places like the park, beach, or sports practices. Watch how to start a bike train video
