My students were very excited to have our very own Turkey Trot! I always tell them about the races I run and one day during running club, a student said we should have our own fun run. It was a great idea, of course, so we planned it! They liked the idea and we even brainstormed ideas for our next holiday fun run. I told the kids we’d have a Turkey Trot before our Thanksgiving break and have pumpkin pie afterward!
I wore my turkey hat and the kids loved it!
Many of the kids tried to run 2 miles since I gave us extra time to run, about 30 minutes.
This student ran 13 laps which is just over 2 miles!
I love that the students enjoy running with their friends, just like I do!
We had pumpkin pie afterward, with whipped cream, of course! I made it into a fraction lesson as I cut the pie, of course. 🙂
I made badges for the kids and for each fun run we have, I’ll make a badge and they can collect them! The kids loved the badge idea and are excited to collect them. I’m excited that they’re excited about running and it’s fun to do something a little different than I’ve done in previous years. Our next fun run will be the Santa Sprint!
