WOW! I can’t believe we did it! We won a Monster iMac for our classroom. Here is how we did it.
First, we played health and nutritional games on www.playnormous.com. Next, we blogged our comments, of what we learned, on our teacher’s blog. After that, we interviewed Cathy Pierson, our Cafeteria Manager about the Food Guide Pyramid. We learned that to be healthy, people need to have a well-balanced diet based on a 1,600 calories a day. After our research, we worked together to find pictures of healthy foods and uploaded them to www.Animoto.com. Some of us even made trading cards at www.bighugelabs.com to inform people of the different types of food groups: fruits, vegetables, proteins, dairy, grains, oils, and desserts. Lastly, we submitted our projects to www.playnormous.com.
We still enjoy every minute of playing their games. We even are making better choices of what we eat. Thank you Playnormous! We are living better because of your website!
