FutureFit Extension Activities

Get Going

(10-15 minutes):
Divide students into pairs. Tell them that they are in charge of planning the class’s end of the year party. You have reserved a pavilion at a nearby park (use a fictitious park or one that is close to the school) from 12:00-2:30 p.m. the last week of school. You will need to tell students how long it will take to travel from the school to the park. Each group needs to do the following:

  • Determine what time the students need to load onto the bus
  • Determine what time the bus needs to leave the school to be at the park by 12:00 pm
  • Plan activities for the class to do at the party, including
  • How long the activity will last
  • Start and end times for the activity
  • Determine what time the students need to load the bus to return to school
  • Determine what time the bus will arrive back at the school


(10-15 minutes)
Ask students to make a time schedule for their morning routine. They can list all the steps of getting ready for school, and how long it takes to complete each step. After they have made a list of their morning routine, they can write the time they leave for school. Working backward, they should give each step of the routine a beginning and end time, based on the amount of time it takes to complete each step. Is there any wasted time in their schedule? Should they wake up earlier so as not to be rushed? Do they have extra time to complete a chore, study for a test or sleep in a few extra minutes?
