Personal Health & Wellness
About a month ago, we were tasked with filling out a week-long "Health Log" for ourselves. This task wasn't for anyone to judge your eating, sleeping, and physical activity habits, but for you to reflect on your habits when compared against the national and provincial health recommendations for preteens and teens.
The links below will help you navigate to articles that give information about health. How does your health log compare to these recommendations? Fill out your reflection page as we move through each area of your log.

Gameplay, Rule, and Strategy Development
We have been exploring rules and strategies of common body-management games, otherwise known as tag games. These games require no equipment to throw, manipulate, kick, or otherwise worry about while we play. The only thing we need to worry about is our own bodies, the rules to follow, and the strategies needed to play the game.
Div 2 students have been discovering that changing the rules makes a big impact on a game. They've been allowed to introduce, change, and alter rules and then we test the games out as a class. The goal has been to keep everyone engaged in physical activity while also keeping the lengths of the game more sustainable. With every rule change, we discuss how strategies might need to be altered in order to remain successful.
Now, students are making up their own tag games and they get to test their games out in class in the coming weeks. The template to the right will help guide them in creating their ideal game.
