Description of Idea

PE Central has teamed up with S&S Worldwide and the Alliance For A Healthier Generation to create fitness challenge calendars for each month of the year. The calendars also include task cards for each challenge, so you can show your students images of the correct way to do the activities.

Students are challenged each day to participate in the activities listed on the calendar. For February 2018, the exercises include Reverse Lunges, Squats, Squat Jumps, Knee Raises, Heel Walks, and Tippy Toe Walks. Each week, the number of repetitions for each fitness exercise increases. Wednesdays are Cardio Day, where students will spend the allotted time either doing jumping jacks and/or mountain climbers.
