    Healthy Mind & Body in Physical Literacy Classroom Project at Ecole Cedardale

    My Students

    Our school is a French Immersion IB World School located in West Vancouver with 12 divisions for a total of 250 students. Students are eager to learn, to explore and are very curious. Our students like to be challenged through meaningful activities and games in a fun and safe environment. By embracing technology, it creates a more varied and dynamic classroom and most importantly, it appeals to the interests of many different students and ability types.

    How will this project impact them?

    After learning how to monitor their heart rate, students will undergo a series of activities that will change their pulse rate. The goal is to have each student self-assess his or her personal fitness and make recommendations for change. The students will have a chance to predict how their heart will react and then see the actual results after the conclusion of the testing. The students will compare predictions and results. Did they underestimate how much their heart rate would increase? Why? What other factors may have influenced their performance (i.e. didn't eat breakfast, just ate lunch, cold, hot, etc.) It allows them to not only learn about their heart, but actually see and feel how their heart responds to their daily lifechoices. In addition, they keep track throughout the school year so that they can meet meet their ultimate yearly goal of improving their fitness level.
