Journal their exercise and food for "xyz" time frame - next to each entry they must write down one word on how that food or exercise made them feel.

If you have older or disabled neighbors, offer to help them with outside chores once in a while. If you walk to school and see an elderly neighbor's newspaper in the driveway on a rainy or snowy day, put it on the neighbor's front porch.

Check with people you know in your neighborhood and see if any of them would hire you to rake leaves, walk their dogs after school, weed a garden or sweep sidewalks or driveways.

Get a new word every day & use it - it's important to exercise your brain as well as your body! Use that word as much as possible that day. Use the dictionary & either pick at random or go in order! emoticon

Spend 30 minutes outside today
Do 20 jumping jacks every morning before you start your day

You can have your students advocate for healthier meals in the cafeteria. They can practice their writing skills as they write a letter to the principal or cafeteria manager asking for healthier selections.

Stretch for a few minutes as you get out of bed. Gets your body & your mind going for a great day! Forwards, backwards, sideways...get those juices flowing.

I am a fifth grade teacher and this school year I am really going to try to spread the spark to my students. One way I plan to do this is by posting a healthy tip each week. Things like - Walk 10K a day! or Drink 8 glasses of water daily. I'd love any suggestions you have. Obviously it would need to be simple (2 sentences at most) and something a fifth grader could do on their own. Thanks for your help!
