Classroom Activities

When you think of Mighty Milers, you probably picture kids (and even teachers) running. But the program also includes FREE curriculum options that you can provide right in the classroom.  Academic Connection includes multiple K-6 classroom activities based on students’ love of running.

Even very young Mighty Milers are often choosing what foods they eat. And certainly, as your students mature, they will be charged with making more food choices daily. Help them learn to choose nourishment that will help their bodies and minds to flourish.

Active Eating is a free series of K-8 lesson plans that use fun physical activities to educate children about making healthy food choices. Lessons explore the importance of each meal, the value of eating a variety of foods, healthy and less healthy food options, and how to select foods that help our bodies stay strong.
