Stepping In & Around
SUGGESTION: Pair up two tall individuals and two shorter individuals. Each person counts the steps and records them at 1,000-step (approx. 0.5 mile) intervals, noting any landmarks. At least one member of each pair wears a pedometer for step count comparisons at the end of the event. Simple step counters give an estimate of steps taken.
