Channel View School for Research Kick Starts Learning At The Beach
On Friday, October 12 Channel View School for Research sixth-grade students kicked off their learning expedition titled “Healthy Bodies lead to a Healthy Mind” by participating in an exercise boot camp at the beach. The camp was led by sixth-grade teacher Laura Dimino. Different stations were set up on the beach where students did drills in jumping jacks, running and various other exercises to promote fitness.
As part of the learning expedition, students will write persuasive essays about Mayor Bloomberg limiting the size of sugary sodas, create surveys and collect data on what students eat and will create brochures promoting the benefits of healthy nutrition and fitness. Their final project will be to create an exercise video or PSA which will be shown to the community at CVSR’s next Health and Safety Fair.
