Instructional Ideas
  • If applicable, co-teach the exercise lesson with the school's P.E. teacher
  • Examine the school's weekly menu and discuss the choices offered
Classroom Considerations
  • Body image disorders begin at an early age, emphasize the importance of staying active instead of the outcomes in one's body size
  • Be considerate to food scarcity—foods generally deemed "healthy" are expensive and hard to come by in some communities, focus are balanced meals, variety, and moderation
  • Comes with a quiz that can be completed orally or in writing
  • None
