Wall of Shame to Wall of Fame!!

Although I have never played very many of the wall of shame games the one that I am familiar with is using Fitness as Punishment. I agree that students should be doing some sort of fitness to help their overall health and they should also learn ways to stay healthy throughout their entire life. Physical Education teachers can use games that are fun, but still get students the fitness they need such as teaching field hockey or some form of it if your teaching younger students. This incorporates hand eye coordination, teamwork, and fitness which is really what they need. This is something they can do for the rest of their life that incorporates fitness. The games that we do in class really get the students minds off fitness and into the game, when the time came to do 10 sit ups or 10 jumping jacks as a repercussion they did it willing because it was their fault for having to do it. Making fitness fun would be easy to do for a PE teacher, you can make any simple game out of anything. If its spitting students into teams and then seeing which team can do the combined most amount of push-ups. Fitness is very important to students overall health not even at a younger age, but it will become even more important as they get older in life.
