Ever wished you could play video games in school? Thanks to the Nintendo Wii, you may just have a shot at convincing your teacher it’s a good idea! Check out this story, about a group of junior high schoolers in Canada that managed to do the seemingly impossible!


Wii Fit Plus Club

A junior high school in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada has created a Wii Fit Plus Club to help students get more physically active during school hours. The club was formed after PE teacher Janet Wells experienced the benefits of Wii Fit herself at home.


The kids, who are in Grades 7 to 9, meet once a week at lunch and they use the system, along with a Wii Balance Board, to do a variety of activities that help keep them fit and in shape, including yoga, strength training, aerobics and balance moves. The activities are projected onto a large LCD screen while the students take turns on the Wii Balance Board. The club also offers activities for more adventurous students, like Snowball Fight!
