Kids learn how sleep affects your body. They'll practice how to relax and recharge their energy while learning ways to manage stress and reduce screen time.
Introduce kids to the role recharge plays as an influencer of the choices they make. Kids learn about the importance of sleep and practice ways to reduce screen time, relax, and energize.
You may already know that sleeping 9-12 hours every night helps to recharge your energy. But did you know that relaxing throughout the day without a screen can also help you recharge?
We are going to move through a breathing and stretching routine while we review what we have learned. Then, we will talk about fit choices we can make between now and our next fitClub session.
Q: What is something you know about recharge now that you didn't know before?
A: You can recharge your energy by sleeping 9-12 hours and relaxing without a screen.
Q: How are mood and recharge similar?

Q: At the beginning of our session I asked you two questions:
How would you answer these questions now that we have finished our first fitClub session?
A: Answers will vary. Listen for responses that show a deeper understanding of "fit" and include references to recharge, mood, food, and move.
Q: When someone asks you about fitClub, you can tell them that being fit has four parts. What are the four parts?
A: Recharge, mood, food, and move.

This will provide you with information about how well the kids are understanding the fit concepts as well as their learning needs. Remind kids that there are no right or wrong answers.
