Healthy Habits

My students need a field trip to Maggie Daley park to have an outdoor experience outside of the classroom and to experience the different ways to exercise.

My Students

My class is filled with exciting, smart, funny, and energetic children. Each students brings a different element into our room. The class has varied ages ranging from 3 years old to 5 years old. I have been a primary teacher for the last 8 years and have experienced an exciting new group of students every year.

My school is in an urban community serving low-income and poverty stricken families who seek and value great education for their children and each teacher at my school not only provides education for each student but also provides a loving, caring, and safe environment for learning.

Each student has a different family background and structure and with that comes with a different learning need that needs to be met for each individual student. Teachers at my school meet students at their level and challenge them to become the best student that they can by providing the best education possible.

My Project

Going on a field trip to Maggie Daley park will help my students experience the different ways to stay healthy through exercise outdoors. It will also connect to our study of exercise in the classroom and a great way for them to explore the outdoors in a safe environment.

Students will be able to identify and actually understand what is considered exercise while running and using the various equipment at Maggie Daley that we have seen, read, and discussed in the classroom through books and activities but have not been able to actually experience due to the lack of equipment at our school and in our classroom.

My students will get to exercise and play with their family members and peers at the park. They will also get to participate in games where they can explore the different ways to exercise, how to play different sports, and how to play on a team.
