My students need balls, jump ropes, a parachute, bean bags, and hula hoops in order to stay physically fit.
Over 60 million adults in the U.S. are obese, according to the CDC. Also, 62% of children who are overweight have at least 1 risk factor for heart disease. Obesity is a growing epidemic that is destroying our Nation. This concern needs to be addressed early on by teaching our children to be active.
It's a zoo in here!
A classroom full of energetic 6 year old kids are roaring to go outside and have some fun. Physical education is a very important component that is lacking in society today. The students in my class come from a low socio-economic neighborhood where there are not a lot of opportunities to be involved in organized sports. Children have a great deal of penned-up energy that needs an outlet. What better way to release that energy and learn the necessary skills for a healthy lifestyle, then by organized P.E. activities?!
This project will allow my students to be able to participate in organized sports at school, where they otherwise might not have the opportunity. The wish list for my class consists of jump ropes for cardio, a class-sized parachute for collaborative exercise, bean bag toss for hand-eye coordination, and a variety of balls, including, but not limited to, a football, basketball, and soccer ball, for field activities.
Teaching healthy living techniques, will improve the physical well-being of my students and influence them to continue living an active life through adulthood, helping to break the cycle of adult obesity overrunning our Country today.
