Fit is Fun!
Posted Monday, April 7, 2014
It was a lesson on health beyond the textbooks for Loveland Elementary School (LES) students Wednesday, March 19, as several classes at the school hosted a Wellness Celebration. It was all a part of a Fit is Fun learning unit designed to study health through research, project development and presentation.
“Ultimately, this project allowed our students to become subject matter experts and then share their knowledge with friends and family members who they invited to our Wellness Celebration,” explained Kirby Loss, LES teacher. “At the Wellness Celebration, students took the lessons they learned one step further and led friends and family members in simple exercises that can be incorporated into any person’s daily routine.”
District Nurse Judy Leamy also took the time to help educate students about a morning routine that will get them started on the right foot each day. It included a step-by-step process and a delicious smoothie tasting.
“Health and wellness is all about choices we make day to day,” said Loss. “It is based on life habits we create. I believe that habits learned at an early age can have a lasting impact as students grow older – and the bottom line for this event – fit really was fun, and that feeling will stick with our students and hopefully make a positive impression.”
