My students need Giant Connect 4, Punching bags, Giant Jenga, and the 4 Zenergy Balance Chairs to add more active learning centers in our Active Learning Lab.
My students are awesome and motivated learners. They enter my Health, Fitness, and Nutrition classroom every day with smiles on their faces. They come from very diverse backgrounds, which makes our learning environment very special. They are polite and kind to each other.
We are a rural school in South Carolina with a high poverty rate.
My students are very energetic and do not let their circumstances hinder their learning. They are excited about learning and are very willing to get the job done.
Research is proving that students who are active in school improve their learning, mental health, behavior, and physical wellbeing. We are fortunate to have an Active Brains learning Lab where students work on regular classroom learning objectives while being physically active.
The items in this project, punching bags, Zenergy chairs, Giant Jenga, and the Giant Connect 4, would be a game changer for our lab.
The punching bags will be used to help students with anxiety and other stress-related problems that interfere with their learning. Students will be able to work off the anxiety as they punch and bounce around helping their mental health. The Giant Jenga will add an area of problem-solving, but will also work on math fast facts. When they pull out a large piece of wood, there will be math fast facts written on them that students will solve. The Giant Connect 4 will also be an active problem-solving station for our students. Kids no longer play games like connect four. They lose the problem-solving skills we developed as kids playing these games with our friends and parents.
You can be a game changer as well by helping my students with this project. My students came up with the list of items they would like added to the lab and we wrote this one together.
