Students in Canton attempted to break the Jam World Record


Canton, MO (WGEM)--Kids in Canton were a part of a world record attempt today to dance.

The goal was to get two million students from all over the county to participate in the one minute dance. But at the last check, there was just about one million. The Jam World Record is a nationwide program that tries to get kids active.

One teacher says it doesn't matter what the exercise is as long as the kids enjoy it.

"Any form of movement is good for your body so whether it be dance, whether it be riding your bike, running. You know it doesn't have to be something boring it can be fun it can be exciting. Just get up and get moving," said Carie Logsdon a PE Teacher.

Carie says they will definitely do it again because it was not only a good way to get the kids exercising, but it also helped them focus better.

"Some of the kids have been using it kind of as a break in class to get them up out of their seat and kind of get them refocused on their school work. It's fun for the kids mostly though," said Logsdon.

Just from Canton alone about 250 kids took part in today's dance.
