I use this lesson at the beginning of the year. It gives students ample time to develop and refine their knowledge, as well as their ability to self-monitor and adjust their physical exertion levels.
Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate various methods to achieve their desired levels of physical exertion based on the type of physical activity they are participating in.
As students learn about the various health benefits associated with active living, and about those related to different levels of physical exertion, they will have the opportunity to explore and reflect on their own efforts both in and out of school.

With animation, interactivity, and sound effects, Starting with Soil demonstrates how plants and animals cooperate to make the soil we need to grow healthy food. Kids learn that soil starts with bare rock and discover how long it takes nature to make one inch of topsoil. (Spoiler alert: it takes 500 years!) Different chapters convey the importance of pollinators and the critical roles animals, the weather, microorganisms, and cover crops play in organic farming. Designed for students ages 7-9, Starting with Soil allows users to plant seeds, build a compost pile, drag a microscope over different organisms in soil to get a better look, and view the symbiosis at work when corn, beans, and squash are planted together.
