We make choices all day long. Let’s help kids identify times during the day when they make choices and practice giving reasons why they made certain choices.
First and foremost, fit is about choices. Each day a child, no matter their age, makes many choices that impact their health and well-being. The lessons in this unit build awareness of the many moments each day when they can make a choice, then empowers them to make the best choice—the fit choice!

Times We Make ChoicesCaptivate your learners’ attention by asking them about the choices they make each day. Draw their attention to the first slide. Ask them to think about what they choose to wear, eat, and do throughout their day. Have fun with the silly choice questions!
Reasons We Make Choices
Ask students to describe some of their choices. Explain that with fit, you will be talking a lot about choices, especially healthy choices.
Check for understanding: Think of a choice you made today. Was it a healthy one?
Sharing the Choices We MakeStudents tell a partner three choices they will make after school today. Invite students to make an “I will” statement about the choices they will make after school.
