The Pre-K classroom in Marzolf Primary in the Shaler Area School District just completed a unit of study on health and exercise.
The dramatic play area in the classroom was transformed into a gym and smoothie bar.
Students were able to “work out” using treadmills, practice yoga poses, lift weights with kettlebells and dumb bells, and even jump on a trampoline!
Students learned about the importance of eating healthy by choosing fruits and vegetables and throughout the month, we celebrated “Try it Tuesday” where the students tasted a different food.
We also learned about the bones in their bodies, and how exercise increases the beating of their heart.
As a large group activity, the class really enjoyed playing Twister!
