On Wednesday, March 28 our second-graders raced around the globe during UA's first-ever Amazing Race. Based on the hit TV show The Amazing Race, the event consisted of 28 second-grade teams that made stops in all seven "continents," collecting clues and completing challenges that led them to their next destination.
After they made it through the seven continents and completed a final challenge, students finished the amazing race and were cheered to the finish line by UA first-graders.
It was such a fun and unique way to get students to use what they've learned in class to accomplish a goal. We can't wait to have another successful Amazing Race next year!
