Lesson 24: My Goal to Move More


In this activity, students apply the goal-setting steps to a goal to increase their daily physical activity. They review how to set a goal and complete a goal-setting activity sheet. They keep an activity diary for the week and analyze the results to help them identify times and places when they could move more and sit less. They create badges and take home a mini-poster to remind them of their goal. They also take home a family sheet to help them discuss ways to get enough physical activity with their parents or guardians.

  1. Set a realistic personal goal related to improving physical activity behaviors.
