Third grade curriculum does not have enough content on healthy lifestyles and nutrition. Because information regarding healthy lifestyles and nutrition is absent from the curriculum, they are likely to make unhealthy eating choices like consuming foods high in sugar and developing a sedentary lifestyle. In order to increase their awareness of the benefits of physical activity and healthy food choices, I created a three-day lesson for a third grade class at Calabasas Elementary in Watsonville, California.
