What does Transform-Us! involve?

Transform-Us! uses innovative behavioural, pedagogical, and environmental strategies within the classroom, school and home settings to get students moving more and sitting less. Schools and teachers can choose to adopt some or all of the Transform-Us! strategies.

It is designed to be delivered by all primary classroom teachers and it does not focus on sport or physical education. Full lesson plans and supporting resources are made available after the online teacher training module (about 20 minutes) is completed.
