Description of Idea

These fitness homeworks are meant for the students to take home and complete. These assignments are designed to ensure the students are exercising outside of school. Each assignment focuses on a different fitness component to improves their overall fitness levels.

This is a homework assignment that gives students a health related topic with questions about that reading. Along with the reading the students must complete a 30 minute workout. If they get a family member to complete the workout with them they get extra credit. This is done to attempt to get the community involved in fitness as well.
