Here is a great resource for PE activities to do while at home. OPEN Physical Education Network has provided a free resource for parents and students to participate in different physical activities. It is the Active Home Module. Normally, this is only available for PE teachers, but it has been made available to everyone for the next few weeks.

Thank you for putting this list together. I have an online movement program launching this Summer, but I’m making parts of it available sooner to support families and students at home now. It’s all around hand-eye coordination, mindful movement, and brain/body connection.
We started a Kids & Family Simon Says weekly program on Friday afternoons, 3pm CST that is free and open to everyone: https://www.handeyebody.com/simon-says-kids
We also have a Virtual Workout program for adults Fridays at 4pm CST (including teachers self-care) at https://www.handeyebody.com/simon-says-workout
We’ll have more programs available for download soon, but just getting started with the Simon Says weekly live events.
I’m happy to share more ideas and give early access to Nashville PE teachers who are interested in learning more. We’ll also have teacher training available online soon.
