Mr. McCormacks class is doing something called Read Across America. The class has exercise bikes that each have one wheel, are equipped with odometers (odometers record how many miles you went) and have special handles on them so that a book being read can be put on them. They read while riding on the bike. When they finish reading they will see how far they get. Then all the miles will be added together.
Mr. McCormacks class will try to get enough miles so that that they will travel the distance from Port Washington to San Francisco. Each member of their class has a tee shirt that says Read Across America. We will exercise and read at the same time, their miles will be added up in math, and the many states they will be riding through is geography study, said Mr. McCormack.
