Did you know that dancing increases your positive mood, strengthens your muscles, and can improve academic work in the classroom? Students in Mr. Helton and Ms. Young’s class at Jeremiah Gray Elementary School dance their way to a mile during their ‘Dance Commotion’ game in physical education. Students learned that there are 2,000 steps in a mile and wore pedometers to track their progress during the dancing game. Amazingly, most students achieved more than 2,000 steps in just one class!
5th Grade students pictured are: Caleb Nelis, Russell Waltman, and Grace Elder.
