PE Central presents our collection of online programs built to motivate children of all ages to become more physically active. We started building these programs in 1999. Each of our programs is designed for a teacher, group leader or parent to register their school/organization first and then students register under that teacher, school and class. The PE Central Cooperative Skills and Fitness Challenges hava a small amount to register. The rest are FREE.
The Log It Site debuted in Aug. 2001. It is age-appropriate for 4th grade and up. The program encourages students to record physical activity steps/miles online. It is not built to record activity minutes. The program features a virtual hike around the USA with stops at each state capital, students can set daily goals, compare their progress with others and they can compete in a Challenge Hike. Teachers can view their students UN's and PW's, add steps/miles for students, communicate with students and they can view their class and student progress.
The Kids Quiz debuted in Aug. 2002. It is age-appropriate for 4th - 6th grade. It is an interactive, educational weekly quiz where kids test their knowledge about nutrition, health, and physical activity. Each week a new question is posted and kids have a week to answer the question correctly. Kids answering correctly are eligible to win a T-shirt prize in a weekly drawing. Kids not answering correctly are shown the correct answer and can come back the next day to try a new question. Prizes are mailed directly to the child’s physical education teacher.
