Take 10!

The goal of the TAKE 10! program is to promote physical activity while simultaneously reinforcing grade-specific learning objectives. To accomplish this goal, the International Life Sciences Institute Research Foundation (ILSIRF) created TAKE 10! to provide opportunities for 10-minute periods of physical activity in the classroom while maintaining the all-important focus on academics. TAKE 10! is a unique approach to academic instruction that addresses multiple learning styles, enhances academics, and motivates children to be physically active -- all at the same time! TAKE 10! is an award-winning school-based intervention integrating physical activity with academic lessons.

The Carlisle Area School District is participating in this TAKE 10! program in all K-5 classrooms this school year. Health Councils in each elementary building will keep records to determine the increased minutes of physical activity occurring throughout the school year. All K-5 classroom teachers have received professional development training.

This program has been made available to the school district through a grant funded by the Carlisle Area Health and Wellness Foundation. For more information about this grant and other activities funded by this community organization go to http://www.cahwf.org/.
