Help kids practice fit choices. Teach them to recall that recharge and mood influence food and move choices. Ask them to identify examples of fit choices.
This activity helps kids practice using the fit-check to help themselves make fit choices throughout their day.
I am going to say some statements, and you are to move to the right for the first choice or to the left for the second choice.
You just made a choice between 2 choices that are both fit choices. Next, we are going to see if we can identify choices that are fit and choices that are not fit as we play "fit, Not fit."
Change your moves: Hop as you move forward and backward.
Change your moves: Jump as you move forward and backward.
Change your moves: Skip as you move forward and backward.
Leader: Think fit. (Pointer finger pointed at brain.)
Kids: Know your mood. (Pointer finger pointed at brain.)
Leader: Be fit! (Show thumbs up!)
Kids: Make a healthy choice. (Show thumbs up!)
Work with a partner to name 5 things that come to mind when I say "fit choices." If you can name 5, can you name 10?
Remember to think fit and be fit when you make choices throughout your day!
