RHINELANDER - Second graders at Crescent Elementary wanted to make history Thursday.

They tried to beat the Guinness world record for "Most People Sport Cup Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day."

37,000 schools in 46 countries were also competing beat the world record. 30 second graders at Crescent elementary were among them.

Kelsey Yunkers is one of those second graders.

She says it's not as easy as it looks.

"Well you got to use two hands, only on the sides, because on top, how is it gonna fit through there? So use the sides, stack on two hands, [not] one.

Sport stacking isn't just for fun.

Teachers say it helps with math and reading. It also uses both sides of the brain.

Kelsey's advice for being good at sport cup stacking is pretty simple.
"It can be even harder if you only do one, she says. "So [use] two hands."

Crescent Elementary will continue sport stacking as a reward for students throughout the school year.

The physical education department is also considering buying the sport cups as a fun way to keep kids active.
