The New Jersey Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (NJAHPERD) has compiled resources to help educators, students, and their families continue their physical education at home. Visit their resource page and check out their Twitter hashtag #HPEatHome where educators are sharing their ideas. NJAHPERD’s national organization, SHAPE America started this initiative. Additional resources are available on the SHAPE America website.
Here are a few of their top suggestions from educators across the country:
An elementary school physical education teacher in Pittsburgh shared an idea for using a modified Monopoly board to get children excited about being active.
Other educators are posting their at-home workouts with their own children, as well as resources and tools they have discovered online.
