My third graders are just amazing. They are full of questions about everything and genuinely love learning. Any given lesson may turn into a spider web of other questions and must be answered in order for their thirst for knowledge to be quenched.
Sadly, many of their homes and lives were changed by a recent hurricane that effected our area.
These sweet kids could use a new, fun activity to keep their minds off of the destruction caused by the hurricane.
Third grade is a transitional year for students. They are bridging the worlds of "primary/little kids" and "secondary/big kids" in elementary school. Third grade students have a lot on their minds already. After a recent hurricane hit, they've got more on their minds than most. Science has proven that physical activity can lift moods. UNICEF Kid Power Bands are fitness bands designed for children. The trackers will enable my students to set goals for themselves and regain some emotional stamina.
Your donation to our project for UNICEF Kid Power Bands helps build a healthier, happier classroom.
The bands are only part of the UNICEF Kid Power curriculum. UNICEF provides educational lessons that our class will interact with, learning about children all over the world that they are helping by just moving! The fitness trackers link to an online application that equates a certain amount of steps that the children take, to food provided to others around the world. What an amazing lesson for my students! Help me keep my students healthy as they help others.
