Adventure to Fitness and a {{Giveaway!}}


      Happy Tuesday, y'all!  While stalking, oops, I mean learning from the wonderful Amanda over at Teaching Maddeness, I saw a website that she talked about called Adventure to Fitness.  I have been waiting patiently for a rainy, yucky day to try it out!  Believe me, we have had some yucky, rainy weather over the last few days---like 3.5 inches since Saturday morning!!  Since we are a Healthier Generation school, I thought this would be a perfect fit!
      It is such a great website and it is FREE to join.  All you need is your school email to register, and then you are all set!  Once you have set up your account, you get a choice of lots of adventures!

      For our first time, I let the kiddos vote on which action adventure to choose.  They choose the Chinese Challenge.  For 30 minutes, they were active by running (in place) in slow motion, moderate speed, fast speed, and mega speed.  They were also ducking flaming arrows from the terra-cotta army of China, jumping, and climbing bamboo.  This was truly an adventure, but not only were they active, they were learning too.

      This adventure talked about what extinction means, that bamboo is a type of grass, the terra-cotta soldiers, the Great Wall, and so much more!  All of this is packed into that 30 minutes!  And, best of all, they are totally engaged...and exhausted when they are finished!  Exhausted is good this time of year, right?!

      I do believe this one is a keeper!! I've linked up with Fourth Grade Flipper for ...

Ok, and don't forget to enter my 100 Follower Giveaway!  It's ending in just four days!!  Good luck!!

Teachers love to use it for indoor recess, as a reward for good focus, to get kids minds moving before a test, just to break up the day, and so much more!
