Fairmount Fifth Graders visit KC Chiefs Sports Lab

The fifth graders at Fairmount Elementary were in for a real treat when they visited the Kansa City Chiefs Sports lab. This field trip featured interactive computer games and hands-on activities while promoting daily activity, good nutrition, and healthy living. 

Students learned how the brain works and put their own basic cognition skills to test.  They also learned how to prevent and treat athletic injuries as well as how to build a well-balanced diet and lifestyle.  After participating in the 17 different Sports Lab stations, students were given a tour of Arrowhead Stadium which included the players’ locker room and the 50 yard tunnel.  Students and teachers all agreed that this was one of the most informational and exciting field trips of the year!
