Health, Nutrition, and Physical Fitness
In class, we are covering some basic health and nutrition facts. The kids are creating simple “collage-type” lapbooks along with charting some health habits, as you can see below.
Since we cover the body systems thoroughly in year one, we thought it would be fun to try the President’s Challenge for Physcial Fitness. What a surprise this has been! As homeschoolers, we think that plenty of playtime is keeping our kids in good shape, but our group has not shown this idea to be true!
So, aside from having a guest speaker who is a nutritionist, our focus this quarter will be primarily physical fitness, instead of our usual science projects. It will be great fun to track our improvement over these few weeks!
