Fort Mill Elementary Students Love the 100 Mile Club!!!

We implemented the 100 Mile Club as one of our Plays this spring. For the club, we purchased Sqords (activity tracking devices, like Fit Bits) and the students get to wear them to track their walking and running activities. The PE teacher implemented a challenge to see who could earn the most points by walking/running the most each day. The students have had a great time with the challenge and have really enjoyed using the Sqords and tracking their activity. Here are some of the direct quotes from students who have tracked their activity with the Sqords: --I really love the SQORDS. I try to get the most points everyday by running laps at recess.-5th grader --I like the SQORDS, because I can take it to girls on the run and see how much I've run that day.-4th grader --Whenever I'm wearing a SQORD I'm always moving to try and get the most points. -4th grader
We feel the 100 Mile Club has been fun and challenging for our students, and it is really making a difference in their physical-activity level.
