Eating healthy can be a challenge, especially for people with special dietary needs. After learning about standard nutritional needs for adults, learners take on the role of a dietician and work together to create a menu for one of the following unique nutritional needs:
- High blood pressure
- Lactose intolerance
- Type 2 diabetes
- High performance athletes

Bone Structure: Hollow vs. Solid
What is meant by the phrase "form follows function?" Allow your budding biologists to discover first-hand through two activities. In the first, groups work together to discover whether a solid cylinder or an empty cylinder can support more weight, both directly and in relation to the weight of the cylinder.

What better way to learn about muscle than by dissecting one? Using cow muscle (beef), learners compare bundles of yarn to muscle fibers as they explore each. The supplemental reading about astronauts losing muscle mass in space and what types of tests are being conducted to combat that atrophy adds real-world value to the lesson, as well as a hook to engage kids.

Good Stress for Your Body
Stress the importance of the different types of pressure our mind and body experience in a lesson about how certain types of stress are actually necessary and good for our bodies. As astronauts and people with injuries can attest, not using muscles for even a short period of time can cause them to shrink and can also weaken bones.

Center of Gravity
Between the pull of gravity and the push of air pressure, it's a wonder animals can balance or move at all. With a hands-on instructional activity about the center of gravity, learners discuss their own experiences with the topic, then work with partners to experiment with the concept through making balances, as well as trying to balance themselves in different circumstances.
