  14. 14. Instructional Software <ul><li>Are You What You Eat -The saying goes &quot;You are what you eat&quot;. Across the United States, seven main regions have developed their own cuisine based upon their origins. But we, as a nation, have been shown to have one of the highest incidences of heart disease due to our diet. You are a taskforce of home economics students whose mission is to publish a cookbook of healthy regional recipes for the United States. Included in this cookbook will be guidelines for healthy eating as well as sample menus from each region which meet healthy guidelines. All recipes must be tested and sampled by the class before inclusion in the cookbook.&quot; </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Look Like a Rockstar - incorporate everything you have learned related to fitness into a fitness program to help you live a healthy lifestyle.

  16. 16. <ul><li>Staying Physically Fit for a Lifetime - You can't participate in physical education class today?  What a shame!  For many students, physical education is a great time to release some energy and have fun!  Hopefully you'll be back in action soon!  While you’re missing today’s physical activity, I want you to learn about a lifetime sport of your choice. Lifetime sports are activities that can be played throughout your lifetime and don’t require a large group.   Some examples of lifetime sports include:  biking, golfing, swimming, rock climbing, playing tennis, canoeing and walking.  There are also plenty more to choose. Explore your lifetime sport on the web and complete the worksheet. </li></ul>Instructional Software
