Description of Idea

After class students line up. Green tickets are given to students who follow "good choices" guidelines. Students receiving green tickets write their name on the back of the ticket and deposit it in an envelope back in the classroom. After 4-6 weeks, P.E. teacher picks a ticket from the envelope (you can combine classes). Student whose name is on the ticket gets to invite 5 friends to the gym for a free choice game during recess or after school.


- Have a different colored ticket for each good choice so students will remember why they received the ticket.
- Store tickets from each grade level seperately and draw 5 tickets per grade. This ensures that more students who earned tickets will receive the extra activity time.
