Geography Club is for 4th – 6th graders curious about globes, maps, and learning about God’s wonderful earth. Students do lots of activities with maps, globes, Google Earth, and play geography games. Geography club meets Thursdays after school during the months of November and December. One of our goals is to practice “Bee style” questions in preparation for Zion’s Geography Bee in December.
Mileage Club is a fitness program that students may participate in during their recess time. It involves walking/jogging around our cemetery path and keeping track of the laps as they are completed. Every time a student finishes a card (21 laps/about 3 miles) they turn the card in and receive a plastic “footie.” The footies are designed to be placed on shoe strings or chains.
Special rewards are earned at these milestones:
5 cards completed = 15 miles (Silver Footie)
10 cards completed = 30 miles (Gold Footie)
15, 20, 25, etc cards (Clear Footie)
17 cards completed = 51 miles (Footie and #50)
25 cards completed = 75 miles (Footie and #75)
34 cards completed = 100 miles (Footie and #100)
Most students who actively participate in the mileage club will be able to complete a card in two or three days. Students who complete at least 17 cards (51 miles) during hte school year will receive a certificate at our closing chapel in May.
