Hip-Hop Health is a DVD with six five-minute health raps that will get students moving in the classroom or the gym. The format of the DVD allows teachers, after-school staff, and recreational leaders to use each segment of physical activity as a short activity break or all the segments together as a full 30-minute workout without the worry of instruction time or equipment. The health raps offer a fun, engaging way to teach children about bones, muscles, nutrition, the cardiovascular system, and flexibility. The DVD also offers lesson plans, the lyrics to the raps, and instructions and tips to help educators make the most of Hip-Hop Health.
