Planning and Preparation

Educators should explore the multimedia content housed at as well as the various educational materials posted at the CDC Web site in order to become familiar with the range of activities available. If the VERB materials will be used as part of a larger campaign to increase physical activity, it would be worthwhile to peruse the planning guides for communities.


  • Software: Flash, media player
  • Computers: Computer with Internet access


All of the multimedia content is free, though registration is required if users wish to create their own character or store information (i.e., physical activity logs) on the site. The educational materials can be downloaded for free, and a limited number of hard copies may be ordered at no cost.
