IWALK Class AT Participation Challenge
Here you may download a quick hands up survey form that you can use to run a participation challenge at school among all classes in order to encourage more people to be active on the way to school during a whole week of your choice (Monday to Friday) in October.  Teachers ask how students traveled to & from school first thing in the morning each day, and only write in the number of students who raised their hand for each of the columns (walked, walked part-way, biked, etc.) and the total number of students in class that day.   Estimated time to complete the survey is 5 min per day or less.

An IWALK volunteer in the school can use these class surveys to find out the Total AT participation for each class that week, and include the results in the school morning announcements or monthly newsletters.  Upper elementary teachers can use these surveys to integrate this AT Challenge into their math curriculum and have students to calculate their daily averages too...
