Suitable for Years 5-8 this classroom kit combines elements from the statistics and physical education learning areas. Your students will seek ‘donations’ of steps from their school community in an effort to cover the length of NZ in one day.
Collaborating with our school and whanau to achieve a goal: Incorporating regular physical activity into daily routines to enhance collective wellbeing.
Categorising personal activities into sedentary, moderate and vigorous.
Developing a fair test for a pedometer app that results in a Class Top 5.
Convincing enough people to ‘donate’ their steps to achieve the class goal.
Our kits are always free but they do come with certain time-framed conditions. Most often you'll be asked to return an image, a flipgrid, a sample of student work or a professional response regarding your learning experience within a certain timeframe.
Conditions are clearly outlined at the point of registration and you'll need to use your own judgement in regards to whether the kit suits you and your students.
