Mini-Lessons

The new mini-lessons are shorter activities that allow for more flexibility for teachers to incorporate health. moves. minds. content into their already existing lessons or curriculum. Mini-lessons range from five minutes to 20 minutes with some activities that can be incorporated into classroom routines more regularly. Teachers can implement health. moves. minds. with their own lessons and activities. The content provided is to guide teachers in determining what content to focus on with their students. It’s important to note, the mini-lessons may need to be adjusted by the teacher to accommodate the unique attributes and diversity of individual classes and students.
