4th graders holding their "miles" run for their virtual Boston Marathon!
This is Mrs. Merlino's 4th grade class holding up the miles they ran today in class. Our goal was to run 1 lap to equal 1 mile. Each student ran at least 2 laps and some ran 3 laps. We previewed the Boston Marathon course map, learned about it's history, what cities it goes through and ran a "virtual" Boston Marathon of 26 miles! My goal was to give them a feeling of running the Boston Marathon and hopefully someday, some of them will!
