My students need 4 heart rate monitors to detect their heart rates and make sure they are in the fat burning zone.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our nation and school has an overweight problem. Kids have no idea how hard them should be working to burn calories.
I teach in a public school where there are 20 different languages spoken.
I am trying to reach all of my students to make them more aware of exercise and their bodies.
This is a very diverse middle school and students work very well together. We are on the high poverty level with free and reduced lunch.
My students will use the heart rate monitors to measure their heart rates. Students should be in a certain "zone," to be burning calories. It is hard for them to know what zone they are in if they do not have these monitors.
These will be used on a daily basis and students will be required to be in a certain zone.
We have a national problem with obesity.
Please help me change the world in making students more aware of their bodies and exercise. They are our future so let's instill lifelong lessons.
