Middle School Energizers  NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund Commission Established in May 001, the NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund Commission (HWTF) invests in programs and establishes partnerships to address the health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations in North Carolina.

Recommendations from HWTF’s Study Committee on Childhood Obesity led to the amendment of the Healthy Active Children Policy requiring 0 minutes of daily physical activity for each child in grades K-8.

Fit Kids Fit Kids, an initiative of HWTF, will provide curriculumsupport materials to assist teachers with implementation of this mandate through a resource rich web site, www.FitKidsNC.com. HWTF will also provide trainings on physical activity integration into the school day using these web site resources to all K-8 teachers in the state. These trainings will be conducted through a grant to Be Active North Carolina and the Department of Public Instruction.

Be Active North Carolina Be Active North Carolina, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of all North Carolinians. Our mission is to increase the physical activity levels and healthy lifestyles of all North Carolinians through people, programs and policies.

The NC Department of Public Instruction The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is the agency charged with implementing the State’s public school laws and the State Board of Education’s policies and procedures governing pre-kindergarten through 1th grade public education. The elected State Superintendent of Public Instruction heads the Department and functions under the policy direction of the State Board of Education.

The agency has approximately 50 positions providing leadership and service to local public school districts and schools in the areas of curriculum and instruction, accountability, finance, teacher and administrator preparation and licensing, professional development, and school business support and operations.

The Healthful Living Section is responsible primarily for curriculum and staff development in the areas of health and physical education. In addition, we oversee the athletics, sports medicine, and drivers education programs for the K-1 public schools.





North Carolina Healthy Schools The North Carolina Healthy Schools is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is designed to create a working infrastructure between education and health to enable schools and communities to create a Coordinated School Health Program. The Department of Public Instruction and the Department of Public Health house the Senior Advisors who establish relationships and build

capacity. A model school health program includes these eight components:

• Comprehensive School Health Education

• School Health Services

• A Safe Physical Environment

• School Counseling, Psychological and Social Services

• Physical Education

• Nutrition Services

• School-Site Health Promotion for Staff

• Family and Community Involvement in Schools NC Healthy Schools focuses on improving the health of students and staff by providing coordination and resources. With all of these components in place and working together, students will be healthier in school, in class, and ready to learn.

Middle School Energizers 5 North Carolina Physical Activity and Nutrition (PAN) Branch The Physical Activity and Nutrition Branch is housed within the NC Division of Public Health, NC Department of Health and Human Services. The PAN Branch is the lead state agency for developing and implementing healthy eating and physical activity interventions with state and local health agencies, as well as with community partners throughout the state.

The PAN Branch’s mission is to stem the rising tide of obesity and chronic disease among North Carolinians by helping them to eat smart, move more and achieve a healthy weight. This mission is accomplished through the administration of successful statewide programs such as the NC Statewide Health Promotion Program and the NC Arthritis Program.

The PAN Branch staffs the Eat Smart, Move More…North Carolina movement, guided by the Eat Smart, Move More Leadership Team. The movement encourages healthy eating and physical activity wherever people live, learn, earn, play and pray. Eat Smart, Move More…NC exists because statewide partners collaborate to increase opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity through changes in policies, practices and environments. The shared vision among the many partner organizations is a North Carolina where healthy eating and active living are the norm, rather than the exception.

For more information on Eat Smart, Move More...NC visit www.EatSmartMoveMoreNC.com The North Carolina Alliance for Athletics, Health, Physical Education,

Recreation and Dance (NCAAHPERD) is an alliance of six associations:

• Dance Education Association of North Carolina (DANCE)

• North Carolina Association for Athletic Education (NCAAE)

• North Carolina Association for the Advancement of Health Education (NCAAHE)

• North Carolina Sports Management Association (NCSMA)

• Physical Education Association (PEA)

• Student Majors Association (SMA) NCAAHPERD’s mission is to provide advocacy, professional development, and unity for health, physical education, recreation, dance, and athletics professionals and students in order to enhance and promote the health of North Carolinians. Our vision is to be the leading organization promoting and supporting a healthier, more creative, and active North Carolina.

NCAAHPERD is one of North Carolina’s oldest professional associations dedicated to the advancement of research and education within the fields of Athletics, Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. NCAAHPERD is involved in advocacy initiatives locally and nationally.

The Middle School Energizers were developed by East Carolina University, Activity Promotion Laboratory in partnership with the NC Department of Public Instruction (Healthful Living and Healthy Schools Sections), the Health and Wellness Trust Fund, Be Active North Carolina, the NC Alliance for Athletics, Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, and the Physical Activity & Nutrition Branch.

Middle School Energizers  Energizers Background In January of 00, the State Board of Education passed the Healthy Active Children Policy (HSP-S-000). This policy provides schools with guidance for local school districts to promote coordinated school health programs, and emphasizes physical education and physical activity components. In April 005, the State Board of Education revised the policy to mandate that schools provide a minimum of 0 minutes of physical activity for all K-8 students daily. It further states, “the physical activity required by this section must involve physical exertion of at least a moderate to intense level and for a duration sufficient to provide a significant health benefit to students”. [A moderate level is described by most as a “brisk walk”.] Finally, the revised policy states, “structured/unstructured recess and other physical activity (such as, but not limited to, physical activity time, physical education or intramurals) shall not be taken away from students as a form of punishment. In addition, severe and/or inappropriate exercise may not be used as a form of punishment for students.” In order for this to happen in NC classroom teachers must take a small, but important role to assure children are provided with the mandated amount of physical activity.

It is through the support of NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund, NC Healthy Schools, Be Active North Carolina, Inc., NC Alliance for Athletics, Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (NCAAHPERD), NC Department of Public Instruction and the Physical Activity & Nutrition Branch who allowed East Carolina University (ECU) to write, pilot, and develop the Energizers for daily use by classroom teachers.

This was a much more difficult task because of the “cool” factor associated with middle school students. That is, middle school students are reluctant to do anything that makes them feel uncomfortable. Due to this barrier, ECU has tried to design activities and movements that middle school students will feel comfortable performing. A Movement Bank is provided at the end of this booklet that can help teachers choose activities that work in their classrooms.

Most of the activities are associated with North Carolina Standard Course of Study Objectives. Some activities do not have associated Standard Course of Study Objectives, but can still be useful as a review of previously covered concepts. In addition, although a specific activity may be identified with a specific grade level because of the Standard Course of Study Objective, teachers of other grade levels may be able to use these activities by modifying the content.

Along those lines, we encourage teachers to review the Middle School Energizers in other content areas, as they may be able to easily modify those activities to fit within their own content area.

To help develop age-and content-appropriate activities, ECU’s team of physical activity specialists collaborated with a group of middle school teachers from the following content areas: math, language arts, science, music, health and physical

–  –  –

The following middle school teachers significantly contributed to development of

the Middle School Energizers:

Barnanne Creech (Zebulon GT Magnet Middle School, health and physical education) William Fuller (CM Eppes Middle School, social studies) Jeff Gibson (Ayden Middle School, music) Christine Hodges (Pitt County Schools, language arts) Madeleine Mahar (St. Peter’s Catholic School, math) Vivian Smith (EB Aycock Middle School, science) We recognize that some teachers will be reluctant to try Middle School Energizers in the classroom because of the concern that students will be “out of control.” However, evidence is mounting that students learn better when they move (e.g., use of classroom-based physical activities has produced improvements in on-task behavior). Also, we intuitively know that many students find it hard to sit at a desk for an extended period. These activities may be what is needed to help students look forward to school and to learn better.
