Elementary school students within the Leake County and Yazoo County School Districts and also within the Yazoo City Municipal School District recently participated in the fun, spirited “Be a Champ” competition to see which classroom could show the most health-conscious spirit through GoNoodle, an online suite of interactive physical activity games designed to improve student engagement, health, and performance.
Thanks to a generous sponsorship through Baptist Health Foundation, students in 18 Mississippi counties have access to GoNoodle, and its companion health curriculum product HealthTeacher. Each GoNoodle activity provides students with 3-5 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity, or “brain breaks,” they can perform next to their desks.
Below are pictures from the winning classrooms.
