Daily Fitness Tip: Sept. 24

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and in the spirit of beautiful fall weather today's tip includes fun, outdoor, educational activities!  These two activities could be fun family adventures or applied in the classroom!

1. Go on a nature walk!  Collect leaves, talk about the different shapes and colors (for younger children) or discuss the biology about why leaves changes colors (with your older students)!
2. Become cartographers!  Go for a walk around your neighborhood or walk to school, the store, friends' houses, etc. Note the different landmarks, street names, and whether you turned right or left.  Then head home or back to the classroom and map your walk!  This is a great way to discuss safe routes to school or the park!
