Pedometers are Powerful!

We used the pedometers from Fuel Up to Play 60 to create a student contest. Who can have the most steps in their log by the Winter Break? It has caused quite a buzz at school! You can hear the students walking down the halls by their "clicking" pedometers that are attached to their shoes and waists! When a student reaches 10,000 steps or more, they bring their pedometer to P.E., and we log the steps on individual fitness goal sheets! It's great on Mondays, because students get off the bus eager to show us their pedometers with over 40,000 steps on them because they were active on the weekend!
