Name of Activity:
Setting Goals for Fitnessgram Test
Purpose of Activity:To set a specific health related goal based on Fitnessgram test scores.
Suggested Grade Level:3-5
Materials Needed:Goal setting question sheets (provided below)
Description of Idea
I use the handouts to help the students set specific, health related goals after fitness testing using the Fitnessgram personal record sheets and reports. It takes them through a step by step process to help them evaluate their health in each component of fitness and set a goal for one of the fitness tests/components they need to improve. There are 3 sheets - one for 5th (which focuses more on the components), one for 4th and a slightly easier sheet for 3rd grade. They then share the Fitnessgram score sheets and their goals with their parents (we do this at goal-setting conferences). After fitness testing again in the spring, they will be able to see if they met their goal (there is a question at the end of each handout about meeting their goal).
