Football & Thanksgiving: “Design Your Own Game Day Plan” Activity 

Thanksgiving and football go hand in hand for a lot of families! Encourage your students to fuel their bodies this Thanksgiving with delicious food, and then get outside and active with their family (throw a football, go to the park or another activity)! In this “Fuel Your Game Day – Every Day Is Game Day” activity, it offers lessons focused on food as fuel for movement and associated activities, including the Design Your Own Game Plan Activity for students. 

Mindful eating and moving are a lot like preparing for a big game. By planning the four quarters of your day, students can create their own “game day plan” in this activity:   

– First Quarter: Breakfast
-Second Quarter: School Day
– Third Quarter: After School
– Fourth Quarter: Family Time  

Age group? These activities are ideal for middle school students.
