Limited Capacity seats available

Participants will examine a Problem Based Learning experience on Nutrition and Wellness. If a health-related issue is discovered, then nutritional and physical wellness concerns are heightened. This is an integrated Health Education Unit focusing on Nutrition and Physical Activity that can be taught in Health, Math or the Science classroom. Participants will go through the unit as students using their own research and interests to see the power of integration when solving real world problems. Students will choose from four real world scenarios to create a wellness plan for their person to follow: A fireman who has high blood pressure, a Rock Star who is on the road most of the year, A construction worker who is pre-diabetic and an Olympic marathon runner preparing for competition. The essential questions to address are how do each of these people fuel their bodies daily and how do they get or stay in the best possible shape they can be in to perform their individual jobs?
