Most kids (and most adults) understand the need to make healthy food choices, get enough sleep, or participate in physical activity regularly. But people do not always base their actions on what they know. One of the challenges of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is to help people translate health information into action.
In this activity, students review the components of the Energy Equation: Food + Sleep + Physical Activity = Energy. They think about the barriers to and benefits of acting on each component of the equation. Finally, students develop a plan for putting their health knowledge into practice.
This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
