Motor Lab fuels activity at Adrian Elementary

Adrian Elementary students, grades K-5, are benefiting from increased physical activity in a program that encourages the principle, “movement anchors learning.”

Working in cooperation with the Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) for Cottonwood, Jackson, and Nobles counties, the Adrian Wellness Committee moved forward on plans to purchase high quality equipment to enhance their existing "Motor Lab." The Motor Lab is a room dedicated to engaging children in movement activities. “This equipment helps them with coordination, using up some of their excess energy, improving hand- eye movements, large and fine motor skills, and being able to do a variety of activities. The response has been very positive by both teachers and students,” states school nurse and wellness committee coordinator Melanie Wagner.
