    • Here are 7 highly engaging “fun fitness” workouts (popular themes like Roblox, supeheroes, etc) for students with lots of interactive choices (my channel is set to children, so even YouTube Kids will work with them.
    • Here are the video file versions of the fun fitness videos via GDrive folder if anyone wants to grab them for direct downloaded use without having to go use YouTube to watch them.
    •  Here is a Google Slides-based “Choose Your Own Fitness Adventure.” Students will download and click “present” to start the quest (great for building ELA skills too!). I can’t publish to web because there’s no way to turn off “auto-advance slides” and want to give kids time to read.
    • These superhero/hero fitness sheets are similar to Darebee, great for home-based learning. Students can click on them for a larger version, and can even print from there if desired.
    • Here are a ton of self-guided skill challenges that students can work on autonomously with little or no equipment, each based on SHAPE standards:

Hy-Vee KidsFit will be sharing a fun activity each day that requires no equipment, and can be done from home!

Dear Health & Physical Educators,

We have entered an unprecedented time where many of you will need to create opportunities for your students to earn class credit while staying at home.

In an effort to assist, we have setup a google folder (Shared Online Health, Physical Education & Higher Education Ideas/Plans) where you can share ideas with others.


We know you’re scrambling to get emergency plans in place for extended and unexpected school closings. We just posted new resources in our Active Home module that are outcomes based and ready to go. Send home documents or give parents downloadable links.

The Connecticut Association of Schools has compiled a resource list to assist Connecticut school physical education departments and teachers during the coronavirus shutdown. This list of resources should be used in conjunction with the district’s curricular goals and philosophy of physical education and wellness. Teachers should review each site and use in accordance with their school district’s guidelines for online education. Be aware that, as with many online sources, these links may include advertising. In keeping with cautionary guidelines for the coronavirus, the activities can be done individually and at home. We have tried to find resources for children of a variety of ages. If you have comments or have other resources to share, please contact Joe Velardi at jvelardi@casciac.org.
