Fourth-graders at a Kentucky elementary school have created and presented a report to school officials that makes the case for more recess. The report stemmed from a classroom lesson and allowed students to use their skills in reading, social studies, math and computers, said teacher Rikki Van Pelt. "We'd been learning about building community and what that means as far as making positive changes during our social studies lessons," she said. "I asked them to pick an issue they felt strongly about, and we'd see what we could do."
