My Students

I teach at a middle school that serves an area that is diverse in it's student population. We have students from all income levels and a variety of ethnic backgrounds. I would like to provide them with an opportunity they rarely get.

It is imperative that we to increase our student's options of activities that they can do throughout their lives.

That way can develop and achieve a healthy and active lifestyle. It will increase their quality of life and reduce health care costs in the future.

My Project

Badminton is a fun and simple game that people can play throughout their lives. It can be either competitive or recreational. By learning how to play badminton my students are provided with another activity to help them stay fit and healthy.

As students get older they will have more responsibilities and commitments.

Badminton can be played at any time or anywhere. They can play singles, doubles, or as a team. There are also stores where very inexpensive equipment can be found. Badminton can be played inside or outside.

Badminton can be played with friends and family. It can be played at reunions or other gatherings. But my students can not have this without learning how to play the game.

My students need badminton equipment to offer them an inexpensive activity that they can do throughout their lives.
