The students at Ashton Elementary are required to walk at least two laps at the beginning of recess. The students walk two lap around a quarter mile track. Prizes are given to the top walking students. This event starts the first day of school and continues until April 30. We do not have our total miles walked this year yet. We require this because we are a rural school, with no sidewalks, path or trails, to the school. Because of this students cannot walk or bike to school. All students have to be transported via bus or private vehicle. This has been a very successful project for us.
How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?
We plan to do this for several years. The students walk, the teacher keeps track of the laps and a parent volunteers tallies up the laps into miles. All working together. Works great.
