4. Cardio Fitness Lesson Plan
Perfect for your Jog-Athon, Walk-Athon, Fun Run, or Fit-Athon! Connect with your health teacher and gym teacher/coach to create some lessons surrounding the ideas of health and wellness.
- Show students how to design a cardiovascular fitness program and encourages them to implement it in their daily lives.
- Teach students how meeting step goals can equate to healthy hearts - perfect if you are using pedometers as part of your incentive program.
- Have students create a "training schedule" to help them prepare for running or walking on event day.
- Cultivate interest in cardio by showing a video of an athletic contest, such as Usain Bolt bolting his way to victory in the 2016 Olympics. Then, encourage students to make their own athletic videos and display them on their Student Fundraising Webpages!
6. Thermometer Subtraction/Addition
There’s nothing more simple and to the point than the classic thermometer to track your fundraising progress. It’s a clear illustration for all ages and quickly communicates where you are on your fundraising journey. Which is why we still see many schools creating a large thermometer to display on their PTO/PTA bulletin board to display their fundraising progress.
Use this fun illustration of your progress to help teach students the basics of subtraction and addition. Students can get their own printed out thermometers and see how much they need to bring in for donations to reach a quarter, half, and all of their fundraising goal!
