Walking Toward Success!
- jessica gonzales, Bennie Cole Elem School
- Physical Activity Participation
Students at Bennie L. Cole Elementary were each given a pedometer at the beginning of the school year to encourage them to keep moving. Over time, students tracked their steps every day and as a campus, steps were totaled. The totals were tracked on a state map to see how many miles were accumulated. In turn, the campus as a whole was motivated to keep active and keep moving. This walking for success program also benefited students academically by having students add and subtract their mileage. Students would record their progress on a website and they could see the school’s progress as well. The students love having their pedometer and continue to keep tracking their progress throughout the school year.
