Description of Idea
I show the attached Powerpoint on the big screen in our gym and I play energetic music along with it. Some of the activities the kids are moving around the gym while some of the activities they stop and perform the activity in place. They are getting a lot of exercise while having fun at the same time. This Powerpoint, I have each slide set to show for a predetermined time. Some activities they finish with time left over. I did that on purpose so they can get a little rest.
