My students need exercise equipment including soccer balls, basketballs, cardio hoops and jump ropes to maximize their daily outdoor fitness during recess.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My school is located the Blue Ridge Mountains. Every time we go to recess we are surrounded by breathtaking views. My students love it when the next item on our daily agenda is recess! The only drawback is having limited playground equipment to keep students motivated with movement.
I want students to have equipment that will enable them to exercise and socialize with their peers during recess.
Students can benefit from this exercise equipment and it will be a vital part of their fitness plan for the upcoming school year.
Most students would agree that their favorite time of day is recess! They love being outdoors, playing, and socializing with their friends. My goal is to encourage movement with my fifth grade students using balls, jump ropes and fitness hoops. Many of the boys and girls really enjoy playing either soccer or basketball. It will be amazing for my classes to have their own balls to play with while out on the fields. I want to see the level of interest in other sports equipment, so I'm ordering the jump ropes and fitness hoops.
Our school is an intermediate school where students merge from three elementary schools into our intermediate school for 5th grade and many of these students have participated on jump rope teams.
It will be interesting to see how many students use the jump ropes who have participated in jump rope teams in their elementary schools. Hopefully, this will encourage more participation during recess and give students an opportunity to get moving!
