My Students

My students are in 6th-8th grade. Some students at my school are passionate about physical education. They are always wanting to be active. I also have many students who are book lovers. These particular students are always walking around with a book in their hands.

I want to combine physical education with reading.

The media center is definitely the hub and heart of the school. I want to have exercise bikes in the media center so students can read while exercising.

My Project

Childhood obesity is a struggle in our country. Students need to be exercising daily. Physical activity can have a positive effect on behavior and learning in the classroom. Our media center wants to encourage reading as well as promote physical activity on a daily basis.

These two exercise bikes will provide students with the opportunity to not only exercise their bodies but also their brains.

We think our Ride and Read area will attract students that do not normally come to the library. Students will be able to read a fantastic book while getting some much needed exercise. I can't wait to see the excitement on the faces of our students.
