Equipment and Materials

Physical activity equipment ranges from pedometers to fitness trails to materials that enhance your facilities or make up for facility limitations. The equipment you use can reinforce the skills and habits you are already teaching and add variety to classtime to keep students interested in their activities.

 

Make the Most of Your Space

Whether it’s playground stencils, fitness DVDs, or supersized board games, there are equipment options that can expand the activity experience you offer your students.

Technology

Incorporating technology into your activity gives you real-time information and tracking on fitness levels as well as adds a modern touch to keep kids excited and engaged.


Outdoors

Outdoor-specific equipment utilize the limitless and unique nature of outdoor spaces to move kids more and differently. This could be anything from geo-caching throughout your school community to wilderness day-treats in your nearby park.
