Mrs. Soprano from Lafayette LA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Running Across the USA

My students need 45 pedometers, with curriculum and storage.

My Students

I want to give my students the opportunity to "travel" around the United States this year in PE! The majority of my students never leave Louisiana. So we are going to take a "running" view of the Good Ole USA!

My students are young, eager learners!

I would venture to say half of my students do not play organized sports, yet alone do any form of physical activity outside of school. So if I want to make a difference, which I strongly do, then I have to do it at school!

My Project

If this project is funded, I will have a pedometer for each student in my class, and even one for my assistant and myself. We will keep track of our steps and then convert them to mileage. Once we have converted them to mileage, we will track our progress around the USA. As we travel, we will learn a few high points about each state. So I will not only be working on cardiovascular endurance, but geography and math as well!

What a better way to celebrate an Olympic year than by traveling the USA!

As we travel to each state we will also learn about Olympic athletes from that state. Our school theme for the year is "Read, White and Blue". So we will be incorporating reading into our travel the USA project, RUNNING ACROSS THE USA! Come on and take a trip with us!!
