Plan your next school field trip at Wheelies Roller Sport Complex.
Teachers know the importance of helping students understand that active living is a part of a healthy lifestyle.
Give your students the opportunity to try something new. Skating is a fun whole body sport which helps create strong muscles, improves coordination and balance through practice and can easily be incorporated into a person's lifestyle for many years. It can be enjoyed with a group or on your own.
Health Canada recommends children and youth receive at least 90 minutes of moderate and vigorous activities per day.
Skating is an easy way to help make up the time.
Teachers in Grades 5 and 6 may want to make their skating time a learning time. Students could check for heart rates after specified times of skating in order to calculate aerobic activity.
Discussion may occur about the muscles involved, cardiovascular endurance, fitness benefits and so forth.
Discussion regarding the use of equipment safely both in the rink and out of doors are important considerations.
Students would further their knowledge with a discussion of the benefits of exercise such as reduced risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and stress.
Let Wheelies help put some hands on action into your classroom's healthy living plan!
