Welcome to the Jumping Jacks Day (affectionately known as J DAY) web site.
Although our example for a Jumping Jacks Day uses a school setting for discriptive purposes, it can also take place in a health club, YMCA, or camp.
Imagine your school day begins at 8:00 in the morning, and ends at 3:00 in the afternoon. Now imagine a jumping jack starting at your school at 8:00 am, but not ending until 3:00 pm. Children will get very excited at the notion that your school started doing jumping jacks as soon as the day began, and did not stop until the day was over! Your school will do one continuous session of jumping jacks for 7 hours. This novel idea teaches children the benefits of exercise and leading a healthy lifestyle.
