The We Count pedometer program uses pedometers as an aid to increasing students’ physical activity levels. The complete program kit ensures your success. Each set includes 15 multi-function pedometers, curriculum mapping to the Australian Curriculum for Health and Physical Education, progress charts, certificates, logs, newsletters and motivational stickers. The program’s design is based on research that indicates that inexpensive step-counting devices (pedometers) motivate and educate students be more active, thereby impacting the alarming increase in sedentary lifestyles. This innovative new program is designed to get kids fit with the slogan, “Get Fit, Don’t Sit”.
The We Count pedometer program comes complete with teacher materials to support learning in the Health and Physical Education learning area about concepts such as benefits of physical activity, healthy food habits and strategies for reducing sedentary behaviours.
