Being Healthy – Weight

Both year five classes have been learning how weight can affect our immune system’s ability to work well and also lead to a healthy lifestyle.

 

The lesson involved an element of reading fluency, discussion on units of measurements and suitable resources, prediction and accurate measuring with a partner using rulers and weighing scales.

 

5C also calculated their BMI (body mass index). In discussions, it was stressed that weight is a CONTRIBUTING factor to a healthy lifestyle and is not the only factor that determines a person’s health.
