Why use the Nintendo Wii Fit in PE??
Using the Nintendo Wii in PE class can be very beneficial to the students. It is important to reach your students by teaching lessons that they will enjoy and apply to their lives. The Wii Fit is a great tool that combines fitness activities and video games. Video games seem to be a major reason that our students are not as active and that we have major obesity problems in our country. Teaching students to play video games while exercising is a great way for them to take an active lifestyle home. If they have the Nintendo Wii at home then they can play the games they have that keep them active like Wii Sports or they could invest in Wii Fit and learn how to exercise everyday with a video game. This is a great tool that can be used at all age levels to teach children how to be physically active without playing on a sports team or running around outside with friends.
