Remind students that physical activity is good for the heart. The heart is a muscle that works better when we are active.

Ask students to trace their footprint on a sheet of drawing paper or construction paper. Inside the footprint, have the student write in a simple activity, such as:

“Do 10 jumping jacks” or “Do five curl-ups.”

Have the students trace their other foot on the backside of the paper and write a different activity on this footprint.

Make a path by laying the footprints around the edge of the classroom or the gym. Invite students to exercise their heart muscle and their other muscles by following the path and doing the activities written on the footprints.
