Welcome to OPEN’s 6-day journey to becoming a Game Day Champion! A Game Day mindset means waking up each day ready to tackle challenges with excitement, bounce back from setbacks, and make a positive difference in the world.

Every day is game day in a physical education class, and this module combines some of your OPEN favorites with some new activities that will surely become your new favorites! Physical education becomes a board game where the activities for each of the 6 days are selected by students from the Winning Wellness game cards. The Winning Wellness game cards focus on activities related to physical health, mental health, or community connections.

The activities within this module develop and reinforce responsible behaviors in a fun and engaging environment where all students can feel successful. This can allow all students to also participate in social engagement and building connections with their classmates that can extend beyond physical education.
