Why We Need Sleep

Fifth graders track how much sleep they get and list reasons sleep is important. In this health and math lesson, 5th graders keep up with their sleep times for a week and make notes about how they feel each day prior to the lesson. The teacher leads a discussion about why we need sleep and reads a book with the class about sleep and health as students list reasons for the importance of sleep and complete math problems based on their sleep habits.

I have found some wonderful resources to use with my students through Lesson Planet. I am a former public school teacher who has taken on a private home school in order to meet the needs of those students who are not being served properly in the public school setting. I want to shift the focus from standardized tests back to LEARNING.
