Step 4: Find ActivitiesPrint Page
It’s time for some fun! Once you’ve built your school health team and used the SHI to assess the school health environment, choose some activities to help achieve your health and wellness goals. We’ve got over 100 activities on a wide variety of topics, so search the library to see what best suits your school’s needs.
Before you get started, here are some helpful tips:
- Test drive an activity at any time. Or, if your school health team is just starting out, we recommend starting Game On from the beginning and then using the activities to tackle your school’s specific areas for improvement.
- Schools that receive grants from AFHK are encouraged to use Game On activities to help implement their grants.
- Physical activity activities include tips and guidelines for making activities inclusive of students with special needs.
Did You Know? Children with special needs are about twice as likely as other children to be overweight or obese, often due to the related greater likelihood of being sedentary. Some conditions, such as cerebral palsy, increase difficulty in eating, which leads to being underweight. However, the general trend of obesity in children with special needs is much greater. Learn how to ensure your health initiatives are inclusive of all children.
