This program integrates important health and nutrition information with eight fun physical activities from the book Thinking On Your Feet. Subjects include risk factors for heart disease, stimulating cognitive thinking, conditioning the brain for learning, dangers of obesity, healthy dieting, and more.

Over 15 Activities

Activities revolve around topics such as cholesterol, blood flow through the heart, 5-A-Day fruits and vegetables, obesity, risk factors, and more. These also provide a dialogue for the teacher to help get the kids talking and excited about the topics.

For example, an activity related to obesity would be having students perform a relay race while carrying a medicine ball, which helps them experience what it would be like to carry extra weight. In the risk factor section, an activity has students rotate through stations where they perform an exercise while thinking about risk factors, such as jump roping and listing relatives or loved ones.

Plans by an Expert

All lesson plans have been created by Jean Blaydes Madigan, an internationally known educational consultant, speaker, and author on the subject of how brain research supports the link of movement to enhanced learning. You can feel confident that your students are both learning and having fun while using this comprehensive pack.
