K-2 & 3-6 SPARKhome

These SPARK activities encourage kids to be active at home. Included are videos, games and movement activities to engage kids in physical activities with their family.

Middle School SPARKhome

The resources provided encourage students to be active at home. Included are fitness cards and videos that can be used to create fitness routines and show proper form and teaching cues.

High School SPARKhome

The resources provided encourage students to be active at home. Exercise information and visuals can be used to create fitness circuits and routines for daily physical activity.

All activities are designed to be done indoors with family members who are known to be healthy. We encourage responsibility in selecting activities that are suitable for your family and consider all guidelines and recommendations of the CDC. To help determine which activities best meet your needs, use your filter to analyze the activity and consider this qualifier:

1) Is it good to go?

2) Does it need modification?

3) No way – this activity isn’t going to work for my situation.

1) Create a FREE account or log in to an existing account

2) Click the “Course Catalog” dropdown at the top right-hand side of the page and select SPARKhome (Free).
