Welcome! Riley Children's Health and Andrew Luck, Quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, are excited to bring Change the Play to your classroom and classrooms all over Indiana. Offering 8 fun weeks of simple and important challenges, we're encouraging kids to make better choices about food and exercise. And we need your continued support and leadership!
In addition to having access to all these helpful health resources, this spring, we're running a special contest to win a field trip to the Riley Children's Health Sports Legends Experience at The Indianapolis Children's Museum including a visit from Andrew Luck!
Explore the resources that we provide below, and then make sure your students are part of all the action by signing up!
Get started by creating an account. Once you sign your class(es) up, you'll receive your first weekly email on Sunday as well as a special participation pack in the mail. You'll receive a new email every Sunday for 8 weeks detailing that week's challenge.
We've provided 8 weeks of fun — each with a different health theme. Don't worry about time off for fall or spring breaks. Keep the emails we send and, when you return, pick back up where you left off. And best of all, you'll continue to have access to all of the fun exercises, recipes and expert advice, that you can use all year long.
Teachers tell us that the Change the Play Challenge offers a fun, exciting, hands-on way to teach their students about fitness and nutrition. They've found value in the curriculum — given the Riley Children's Health expertise and insight — and have shared that having a role model in Andrew Luck has encouraged their students to be more active and make healthier choices. Also, at the end of the Challenge, one lucky classroom will receive a grand prize for their efforts. To be eligible for the prize, your classroom must answer the essay question during registration and complete at least one week of the Challenge, by clicking "Complete."
All you need is a computer, printer and Internet connection. We'll do the rest by offering you helpful videos and printable resources that guide you through all 8 weeks. Check them out below.
Here are just some of the helpful videos and printable resources to guide you through week 1. The same kinds of tools will be available to you for all 8 weeks as we’ll be emailing you links every step of the way.
Take a look at the week 1 playbook. This printout is a helpful guide for teachers that breaks down the themes, tasks and importance of each week. You’ll get one for every week.SEE THE PLAYBOOK
