After a calorie-filled week celebrating Halloween, students spent last Friday burning off some of those extra treats. Using Dartfish’s Easy Tag app students kept track of how many laps of the gym they were able to complete during a five minute run.
The discussion that followed was very eye-opening for the students. Students learned that it takes approximately 5-10 minutes of running (depending on speed) to burn off the calories from one Halloween-sized chocolate bar or equivalent treat. Many of the students took it upon themselves to run laps of the school yard during recess to work at burning off calories in advance of the candies that they were planning on eating later that day!
