How I get my English kids ACTIVE...

This past week we've enjoyed unseasonably warm weather (mid 60 degree temps). That doesn't happen very often in Wisconsin in February! I wanted to take advantage of the warm temps and get my kids outside. Yesterday I created a quasi-obstacle course on the high school track for my 6th period English class. I created 16 stations and at each station kids completed a physical task and answered a question about the book we've been reading in class. I also included a couple "sit down and read" stations. The activity was a huge success! Definitely doing this again!
