Indoor Mobile Fitness Equipment. Our
Indoor fitness equipment is mobile as indoor facilities vary from school
to school. Some have gyms, other use multipurpose rooms, and so on.
Our indoor equipment is comprised of the following:
Curriculum and Lesson Plans
The curriculum is not to replace any existing curriculum. We have two curricula:
The first is the Broad Based ideal for classroom teachers and non-physical
education teachers. Each teacher will receive a curriculum germane
to the grade level students they teach. This book focuses exclusively
on the outdoor station equipment to ensure a "safety first" campus
as all teachers will understand the correct technique for using the
outdoor equipment and can supervise recess and lunch student usage.
There are also 4 well being/health units with lesson plans that center
around nutrition, smoking intervention, understanding your body and
exercise. The lessons are clusters by grades 1-2, 2-4, 5-6, 7-12.
The second is our Core Curriculum. It was written by Master PE Teachers and former Grant Recipients for future Project Fit America PE Teacher/Grant Recipients. This book has lessons by chapter for each piece of equipment donated as well as going beyond the lesson plan to include character development, cross curricular lessons, after school programs, fitness clubs etc. NASPE standards for each lesson are clearly identified. This book has also been approved by the Science Committee of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a partnership between the American Heart Association and the William J. Clinton Foundation.
Curriculum Lesson Plan Support Supplies
From our Year End Teacher Evaluations of this program we have learned what are the most popular lesson plans and provide schools with the materials they need to run those lessons. The day after our on site in-service, teachers can start using the lessons because they do not have to make and/or purchase the support materials on their own time or at their expense. These include the following:
*We provide certificates and ribbons for free. Each school receives a starter kit of 25 of each and then call in for supplies as needed. Last year we gave out over 60,000 certificates and ribbons! If they are running programming we will keep them in supplies.
