Hooray! This project is fully funded

I would like you to consider a grant for my 4th and 5th grade students. I teach Advanced Learners in two Title I schools in Guilford County. I would like to get some pedometers for science and math projects. I would need 10 pedometers. These are the types of projects I would do: The learner will conduct investigations and use appropriate technology to build an understanding of how food provides energy and materials for growth and repair of the body. Activities would include using the pedometer to determine how many calories are burned during walking activities. We would use these activities to learn about nutrients, calories and chemical changes, starches, sugars and carbohydrates. We would tie this knowledge into making healthy food choices for healthy living. Fo Math, activities would center around discovering how far we walk during the school day in the building, on the playground, and possibly at home or at sports events. We would use the information to develop data analysis, and compute measurements in miles and kilometers. I'm hoping that by using the pedometers students will internalize the benefits and joy from exercising regularly. This southern region is the highest region for strokes and heart problems. It is never too soon to motivate our students to become health conscience.
