Pedometers in HPE Class- Let’s Climb Some Towers!

From Fitbits and Jawbones to Moov Nows and Piezos, Fitness trackers are all the rage right now! Why not bring that into the classroom/gym class? (Simple pedometers work great too!)

I’ve made a few posters (in French & English!) that show the number of steps it takes to reach the top of the CN* & Eiffel Towers. Students can challenge themselves to see how many HPE classes it takes to get to the top of each tower (or how many times they can climb them), you could even do a school-wide challenge to get everyone involved! Physical literacy is a central part of today’s HPE curriculum and having fun meaningful ways to get students moving is essential. Have fun!
