Encourage Students to Stay Active Wherever They Are

Written by Administrator

AHA NFL Play 60, created in partnership with The American Heart Association and the National Football League, features resources to help get your class moving, whether you are in the classroom or learning remotely. Resources include videos, lesson plans, digital explorations and virtual field trips highlighting the impact of physical activity on health and wellness.

Videos 

Encourage your students to get their recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity a day with these quick videos, featuring NFL players. Appropriate for classroom or home use, these videos focus on movements that increase coordination, stabilization, flexibility, cardiovascular health, and strength. Use these videos alongside our NFL PLAY 60 Challenge lessons to illustrate educational components in a fun and engaging way, or as a classroom break to help increase student focus once they return to their lessons.

Digital Exploration

Have students explore the science behind how regular physical activity positively impacts us physically, mentally, socially, and academically. Along the way, students will get tips and information about different activities that can help them reach their recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day.

Virtual Field Trips (available on-demand)

The NFL PLAY 60 Challenge curriculum includes no-work printable resources to share with families.  Families can incorporate these fun activities into the week to help students get their recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity a day. 

Lesson Plans

Aligned to National Physical Education Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and Common Core State Standards for grades 6-8, these lessons allow educators to relay the importance of daily physical activity and provide an engaging, hands-on experience to bring critical content to life.

Just in time for the NFL draft on August 29, get students ready to move with these fun activities and digital experiences! You can find these resources and more in the Discovery Education learning platform on the AHA NFL Play 60 channel.
