Abraham Lincoln

Level - Elementary

Subjects - Physical Education, Math, Health

Students will build number sense by practicing counting to 200 during various physical exercises.

To honor Lincoln's birthday in physical education class, challenge students to do something 200 times (jumping jacks, run 200 yards, jump rope counting to 200). Or make this an "at-home" assignment for students to walk or ride their bike 200 miles in 2009. Encourage parents to take part in this healthy activity.

Be sure to list this one in your class newsletter or on your class website.
