Healthy Habits Project

15 Apr

In the third-grade SCIENCE classes, we did a project in which students recorded their habits during one week.  The three categories were physical activity, screen time (which includes watching TV, playing computer games, or nintendo) and sleep.  Here you can see the results of the three classes.

We discussed that it’s important to have a balanced life- eating healthy, doing exercise, having friends and sleeping.  We should limit “screen time,” although some students used the computer to play educational games on their class blog.
