Help kids learn that being fit means making healthy choices to form lifelong healthy habits involving rest, motivation, food, and being physically active.
Kids brainstorm what they currently think "being fit" means. They will learn that being fit is making healthy recharge, mood, food, and move choices.
Do you know how many hours you sleep at night?
Did you know that getting 9-12 hours of sleep each night is one of the ways you can be fit? While you are sleeping your body is recharging, growing, and storing memories!
We will learn a lot about healthy choices during fitClub. But first, we will do a brainstorm race to share our ideas about what it means to be fit! Take a moment right now and think about how you will answer this question, "What does it mean to be fit?" (Pause for 30 seconds to allow time for kids to think about their responses before continuing with the activity.)
Q: What part of our fitClub are you most excited about?
A: Answers will vary. Reply to kids' responses to help them understand that the purpose of fitClub is to learn about and make healthy choices.
