 Take-Home: Healthy Kid’s Club Wristband


  • Theme: Skitter the Alien
  • Activities: Extract bones during a fun game, become blood droplets to travel through a circulation circuit, use a real stethoscope, practice some exercises, play 2 different kinds of memory games, examine different parts of the brain.
  • Cross-curricular connections
  • Take-Home: Each student chooses and keeps a Healthy Active Kid’s Club wrist band.

I like that another adult was telling the students about the importance of eating healthy, getting enough sleep and getting enough exercise. It makes it real to them when they hear it from different sources. It was active and hands-on!
