Fortress Invasion and other PE Innovations

These days, Physical Education is a place to learn to love fitness!  On any given day you will see pool noodles, bike safety lessons, scooters and students sitting in circles to focus on sportsmanship and mindful breathing.  Alex explains to us a tricky and complex game that the 4th and 5th grade students love called Fortress Invasion.   We also talk about screen time, the obesity epidemic, team building and consent.

Learn a tip about making sure your child gets outdoor play.

This interview is great for anyone that is interested in fitness and youth.
