  • Tammy - May 2017 says:

    This is a great way to do Fitness Skillastics and address character ed topics at the same time. Our students at PRES love being active while playing this life size game. We, as PE teachers, love that we can do this activity with a large group of students and everyone is active together.

  • Marta says:

    This is an awesome activity that allows students to be physically active while also learning about positive character traits.

  • Barbara says:

    Character development should be embedded in everything we do as physical educators. This activity allows teachers to easily instruct students about various character traits, all while still being activity and having FUN! My district purchased a kit for each of our elementary schools (155) and the teachers have enjoyed having this in their toolbox of awesome instructional materials for quality physical education.
