Mission: Health 2nd Grade
In this wellness and obesity prevention course for second graders, students learn to think critically about the food choices available to them, as well as the difference between sedentary, aerobic, and everyday activities. Set in outer space, the four main characters are on a quest to learn more about eating right and getting the right kinds of physical activity. This course is designed to be teacher-facilitated via an interactive white board, and features six interactive mini-lessons, engaging videos, and educational games that give students the opportunity to practice the skills they have learned.
