Teacher’s recommendations and homework assignement. When Students receive the booklets they were offered to calculate their biorhythms and invigilate their body changes.
  5. 5. Conclusion: we and other students, who were informed about biorhythms noticed that biorhythms are very important in our daily life. While students were working individually they were learning about biorhythms, their types, benefits and trying to understand their importance to their bodies. While working in groups they were learning communication and collaburation among classmates. In conclusion, we could say we achieved our objectives.
