Grade 5 students have started the year off with a bang! They learned and researched all about the body systems and healthy balanced diets. The have brainstormed the topic, Fit for Life, and developed their own central ideas and lines of inquiry. This is evidence that JKS motivates their students to take ownership of their learning. Students are excited and have discussed external factors that influence the body. They learned more about the importance of healthy eating, exercise, and the effect sleep on the body.
