Distribute equipment or resources to keep students moving

What’s involved

Keeping kids on track with physical activity can be a challenge when students lack equipment at home. But school staff can deliver equipment to promote physical activity and make a big difference!

  • Identify the age group to whom you will be sending equipment packages.
  • Secure funding to purchase equipment.
  • Develop a plan to deliver the equipment to students (and potentially find partners to support this).
  • Deliver the equipment and follow up with classroom ideas and lessons that support the use of the equipment sent home.
