The Daily Mile During Remote Learning
We know the school year is going to look very different compared to last year, but no matter how students learn, The Daily Mile can have the same positive impact.
The big picture: Physical activity is essential for kids. Research shows it can boost the immune system, improve mood and fitness, and so much more – all things our kids need to stay healthy through this challenging time.
The bottom line: We can’t change many of the things that make learning at home difficult, but we can put one proven idea to work – schedule time for children to move every day. We’re asking K-5 teachers to include 15-minutes of daily physical activity in their remote learning lesson plans during the school year. One simple way to do this is through The Daily Mile, a free and simple children’s health initiative that gets kids to fast walk, jog or run at their own pace for 15 minutes every day.
If you’re a teacher, principal, school administrator, or parent – join us for a 30-minute webinar at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, August 27 to learn about The Daily Mile during remote learning and other new resources to help you and your students stay active in the year ahead.
The Daily Mile During Remote Learning has already commenced. Stay tuned for a recording of the webinar here and on our YouTube page.
