Physical Activity Kit (PAK)
What is the Physical Activity Kit?
The PAK is based on best and promising practices to increase physical activity. The PAK toolkit can be used in schools, communities, worksites, Head Start programs, elderly centers, and youth programs. The goal of the PAK is to increase the time American Indians and Alaskan Natives spend in medium to high physical activity for all ages across the lifespan. While the activities have been field tested to be culturally appropriate for Native communities, others might find PAK useful in their community.
Learn more about the PAK toolkit through the following videos and downloadable books.
PAK Book #6, or the Adults and Family Book, [PDF - 3.9 MB] contains a variety of physical activities that can be done by a family. There is no video for this book.
