Ortonville High School and Elementary students can now measure the number of miles they will need to walk. run or jog to burn off that extra piece of pumpkin pie due to a $2,000 grant from Pamida Stores. The grant was awarded to the Ortonville School Physical Education Department to purchase pedometers for the K-10 physical education cur- riculum. A pedometer is a digital device worn at the waist that counts steps and then converts them into miles and calories burned. The pedometers can be used to assess cardiovascular endurance and journal miles traveled. Students will perform age-appro- priate activities and then document and analyze the data. Becky Holtquist, girls gymnastic coach and high school phy.ed teacher says, "It is a great learning tool because students see immediate feedback about their activ- ity level. And we hope to motivate students to lead a more active lifestyle." High school classes are working on a "fast food meal calorie burn" experiment. Students compute the total calories in their favorite fast food meal and then are given a week of class time to attempt to burn off those calories. Ryan Wandersee discovered that a week wasn't enough time to burn off the calories from his favorite meal as he worked out extra hard on Friday morning, attempting to burn off the last few calories by weeks end. In fact, only two of 30 girls in one class burned off all the calories from their meal. The 7th grade classes are working on an American Revolution walk. They log miles in physical education class and then take these miles to social studies where they attempt to see which team can travel from point A to point B on a map while studying the American Revolution. Holtquist thinks that the pedome- ters may be helpful for other Ortonville residents as well. "I know several teachers who have purchased the pedometers. It's a good motivator and can be helpful in weight loss pro- grams, and teaches a correlation between what we eat, and how we use all those 'extra' calories." Go b.head, enjoy one more piece of pumpkin pie. ORTONVILLE DAVID PAl checks the o ment of beginning exercise the quantity of cal, lent to his favorite meal.
