  1. I liked the Adventure to Fitness give away. There are a lot of good opportunities to win prizes for my classroom and students.

  2. My students would love the sports books. My collection is in need of this genre. I think the ?Adventure to Fitness sounds like a great program. Lakeshore has fantastic products that would enhance any classroom.

  3. Here in Buffalo, New York the students are Football fans in the fall with the Buffalo Bills and hockey fans in the winter with the Buffalo Sabers.

  4. I don’t know much about sports except I play soccer barefoot. That said I played “baseball” with my two brothers- they either batted while I pitched or they pitched and fielded when I batted. They tried to explain football but I just fielded as they instructed. Lakeshore not only has teaching products, they have some nice free resources. I will be looking into the Adventure Rewards Contest 2015 and the Crayola site again.
