Safety Considerations

Classroom physical activity programs are a fun way to engage your students in movement, learning, and play. But these activities can become hazardous if students are unsupervised, activities are not age-appropriate, or if the classroom is not arranged properly for activity. Accidents happen for many reasons, but you, as the teacher, can prevent them! 


 Teacher Resources

Though unlikely, if an injury does occur as the result of classroom activity, the injured student should be sent to the school nurse’s office for immediate treatment. If a school nurse is not available and you have to treat the injury yourself, we recommend using the P.R.I.C.E. method to handle your
student’s injuries.
