Physical Education Info - April 1st, 2020

 

Dear Parents, Please see the following message from the K-12 Health and Physical Education Department. 

 

Dear Parents,

 

In light of the current situation regarding school closings, Activity Works wants to assure that all of our students have the opportunity to bring Activity Works home with them to use with their families. A school account has been set up for all of our students. 

 

Activity Works combines physical activity and core curriculum content so students exercise while they learn about Dinosaurs, Space, Endangered Species, Fractions, Nouns and Verbs, and many more. Activity Works has 1, 3, 6 and 12 minute animated episodes (with child actors, professional voice over talent and originally scored music to meet a beats-per-minute protocol) and cover all subjects, including Cultural Arts. The program even has a nutrition component called All Star Health Squad that also includes fun and engaging animated videos, teaching students about the importance of fruits and vegetables. Activity Works is used in HISD classrooms so many students are familiar with the program. Activity Works demonstrates that exercising and learning can be fun!
