Chandler View Walk Across America

Physical Activity Participation
We are having every student walk daily and each classroom is keeping track of how many miles they walk. We have a map of the United States with the trail marked. We combine the miles for each grade level to see how far they are walking. One 6th grade class has also joined the 100 Mile Club. They walk about 1 mile per day.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

A small team of teachers handed out information to every teacher how the Walking Club would work. All the teachers were on board. Most of the teacher or their parents walk with the students. The 6th grade Teacher doing the 100 Mile Club always walks with her students.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Since the Walk across America is year-long, students will hopefully see by the end of the year an improvement in their stamina by walking daily. Hopefully, they will keep up the activity over the summer.
