Weighed Down Activity
Overweight and obesity are serious health issues, and overweight young people are at risk of becoming overweight adults. This activity set features one large, 4"-thick torso pad and two 2"-thick thigh pads, each with adjustable straps, that allow wearers to experience the decreased mobility that comes with unhealthy weight gain. Students perform a series of activities—such as tying their shoes and getting off the floor—without wearing the pads, and then they perform the same activities with the pads while describing how their mobility is impacted. Comes with a detailed activity guide with instructions for four activities and discussion points. A great way for sensitively dealing with a serious health problem. For use with Grades 3–6.
