What is BMI?

Students calculate their body mass index (BMI) and research BMI. In this weight and health lesson, students measure their height and weight and use the BMI formula from the CDC website to calculate their BMI. They research BMI, how it relates to chronic health problems, and their own BMI status.

I was at a crossroads trying to think of a new… interesting… active way to introduce and teach the different types of economic systems. I turned to Lesson Planet and entered “Economic Systems” into the search tab and was inundated with resources and lesson plans and ideas… the kids loved the lesson I modified for them and still ask when we are going to do another lesson like that “Paper Airplane Company” one. Thanks Lesson Planet.
