Celebration of Learning: Exercise
Why Investigate Exercise?
Our bodies are made to move. Young children are in constant motion when they are awake. They wiggle, stretch, bend, jump, hop, bounce, and climb. Moving makes children feel capable and confident, releases tension, and builds strong bodies and mind.
This study begins with children's natural desire to move. Children will explore many types of exercise, observe people while they are exercising, and learn about the mechanics of movement and how to use special equipment to stay safe when exercising. They will also learn about nutrition and jobs related to exercise, and the connection between exercise and healthy bones and muscles.
They will gather data, meet interesting people, explore a variety of challenging exercise movements, and prepare energizing snacks all while using literacy, mathematics, art, and technology!
Stay tuned for photos of your children exploring exercise!
