Honey Dew Elementary School's student were trying to help make history Thursday by stacking cups.
And in doing so they worked on their hand-eye coordination and challenged their left brains and right brains in a fast-paced exercise that quickly cycled about 500 students in big groups through the school's gym in 2 1/2 hours
"It helps kids process thinking better," says Karen Paulson, the school's PE teacher who organized the event.
The students sat on the gym floor alone or in small groups or stood a tables, stacking cups as music blared.
Nearly all of Honey Dew's students – kindergartners didn't stack – joined young people everywhere to participate in "Stack It Up," an effort to break the cup-stacking record in the Guinness World Book of Records.
The goal is to break last year's record of participants, 412,259.
Some students will also move on to compete in a cup-stacking event at Auburn High School in March.
