We very excited to announce from now to the end of the school year, Mrs. Rice’s 6-8 PE classes will be participating in UNICEF Kid Power, a program from the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. UNICEF Kid Power gives kids the power to save lives. By getting active with the UNICEF Kid Power Band, kids earn points and unlock therapeutic food packets for severely malnourished children around the world.
UNICEF Kid Power is a teacher-led experience that leverages easy-to-use technology and standards-aligned lessons and activities. The Kid Power Band measures a wearer’s physical activity (steps and movement) using the Band’s pedometer and accelerometer. The Band does not track a wearer’s location, and does not have access to any location data or personal information. Physical activity data from the Band is completely private, and only viewable by Mrs. Rice. UNICEF may share aggregate physical activity data and summary information with research partners, but individual data will not be publicly available.
