Find Your Fit Fact Physical activity nourishes brain tissue and stimulates its production of neurons, synapses, and blood vessels. Some studies have found that walking can counter memory loss in people over age 50.

Find Your Fit Activity Suggestion: Follow the Leader It is important to be listening and following what your head expedition leader is saying to insure the safety of the entire team. This warm up will get students aware of their surroundings and listening to their group members. Have a student volunteer to be the expedition leader. This student will be the leader and the rest of the class will follow them. The leader can do any kind of movement that they wish, some movements including running, hopping, crawling, rolling, etc., and the entire class must follow. Switch up the expedition leader after every couple minutes.
