I’m sending this challenge to our students as they enter the summer break. It’s simply a resource to use for ideas. Each square has a direct link to a Youtube video of the listed activity. Feel free to use it as a June fitness challenge.
Secondly, I’ve added another fitness challenge to my TeacherPayTeachers store called HOPPING, SKIPPING, and JUMPING for FUN! It’s another 30-day challenge, which can be started anytime.
The two challenges can carry you through the end of the year and into the summer!
It has been remarkable to see the PE teaching community unite in support of each other and students all over the world. On a daily basis, social media has been rich with useful resources, and inspiring examples of student learning. For this, I thank you. I couldn’t be more proud of my profession.
This quick post is several videos I’ve made over the past 10 weeks. If you haven’t already, I hope you can find them useful.

This S.T.E.A.M. project has been a huge hit for my family. The goal is to build the highest tower possible using the following formula:
Each recyclable item is a level. Therefore, a coffee container stacked on top of an egg carton would be two levels. It would be easy to stack a bunch of boxes on their sides. Although you would successfully stack a high number of materials, your measurement in inches (or centimeters) would be relatively low. So stacking a few materials right side up would be in your best interest to maximize your measured height.
Remember! It’s not simply the total number of levels stacked. Your final score is determined by the number of materials (levels) high + number of inches high.
All you need are some recyclable materials and some open space for literally hours of fun. First, we each completed the challenge individually, trying to beat each other’s records for height. Next, we made it even more fun by forming teams. The collaboration was awesome!
