As the weather gets colder and fewer outdoor activities remain available, it is often challenging to stay motivated to do physical activity! This year, Unruly Studios is fighting fall fatigue with the launch of the Unruly Fall Fitness Challenge!
A combination of exercise and critical thinking, The Fall Fitness Challenge energizes virtual learning for kids and puts coding skills to the test. Plus, there will be prizes in store for the winners (You know, apart from the very real benefits of exercise and mental agility!).
The Fall Fitness Challenge will run from Wednesday, November 4 to Wednesday, November 25.
Each week for three weeks, there will be a new challenge in which students work together to create functioning code that will enhance a fitness activity. Here is a sneak peek at the virtual learning prompts for each week:
Week 1 - Building a countdown timer
Do as many burpees, squats, jumps, zigs and zags before the clock runs out!
Week 2 - Building a stopwatch
Use the stopwatch to find out how quickly you can get through your favorite moves
Week 3 -Building a fitness machine
Combine your stopwatch and countdown timer for a full fitness circuit
Each individual school enrolled in the challenge will act as one team, even if the school has Splats being used in multiple classrooms. Teachers who want to work together should team up and join forces!
Teams earn points by having students complete the weekly challenges, with more points being awarded the higher your team’s average score becomes. For example, in the first week, have students record their high score of how many air punches they can do in 15 seconds! At the end of the 3 week period, the school with the most points will win the coveted Golden Splat Trophy, plus Unruly Certificates!
