Sworkit:  A totally free video-led exercise web platform and app that lets you utilize pre-made video workouts; or you can create your own exercise routine!  Better yet, there is a kids section that has kid friendly workouts where kids are in the video doing each exercise.  This tool lets you choose the length of the workout, provides cues for each exercise, and can be custom tailored.  If you use the "screencastify" program, you can record the workout and post it for your students so they don't need to create an account
