Consider the details

Decide on rewards and routes.

Gather the group of participating teachers to select a range of rewards for children and to decide when rewards will be given. Some classes have chosen to have children walk for 3 weeks before the first reward so that habits have already started to form. 

The teachers should be aware that negotiating interesting rewards will have a notable improvement for the project. Without this, motivation may not be as high as it could be. Rewards should be cost free and be motivating for children such as a walking adventure, double recess or a movie in class. 

Decide on a range of drop off and pick up areas to allow children who may live too far away from school to take part. You may decide to provide a map of these points to parents.
