This activity focuses on getting the students to think about disabilities and how they can make some aspects of life more difficult. The students are asked to pick a disability and design a new kind of sport for it.
In this problem-based learning module, students will be asked to brainstorm ideas and think innovatively both independently and collaboratively in addressing a real-world problem that is relevant to their daily lives and health. Are students aware of their calorie intake and how it affects their overall health? Students will investigate the calories consumed in a typical day and how much physical activity is needed to stay healthy and fit. Students/teams will be encouraged to use the internet for research purposes in their design phase. Students will utilize various online platforms to design an infographic that can be shared with relevant individuals in the community and others in the school building
In this interview with Dr. Robert Ross we discuss what a successful obesity management is and what a clinical meaningful weight loss is? Furthermore we discuss recommendations regarding physical activity for health in the general population and which strategies we should take to have people sustain physical activity in the long run.

What determines our health? Why does life expectancy differ so much from country to country, or even from one group to another in the same country? Well, there is no easy answer to these questions. There are many factors that play a part in determining the well-being of the population, or even of an individual. In global health, we call these factors determinants of health. Determinants of health interact with each other, and influence our health status is in numerous ways, in turn influencing our well-being, morbidity, mortality, and life expectancy. As you already know, the first and most important health determinant is income. Income of an individual or a household, but also income of the country a person lives in. Other important health determinants are education, access to water, diet, environment and many more. In this presentation we will look closer at how health determinants determine an individual’s health, and how different health determinants interact with each other.

This presentation discuss how important physical activity and sleep in children is if you want to prevent obesity and cardiovascular disease. We will present the main cross sectional results from the OPUS School Meal Study. The focus will be on screen time for children, the amount of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA), and sleep time. We will also touch upon differences in boys and girls as well as week and seasonal patterns.
This presentation introduces factors for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In continuation of this, we will discuss the rationale for including measurements of activity and sleep in the OPUS School Meal Study. Furthermore, we will describe the methods used to quantify physical activity and sleep. Finally, we will highlight the important ongoing data analyses from the physical activity and sleep measurements.
In this lesson, students will compare weather and climate, explain patterns over time and participate in a climate relay race.
Time: 45-50 minutes
Materials: globe, flashlight, three sets of clothing for the relay race (sunglasses, sunhat, swim suit, board shorts, rain jacket, hiking boots, umbrella, sweater, heavy jacket, warm hat, gloves, scarf, etc.)
This is a lesson plan for an activity about heart health and physical activity. Students will research, answer questions, and create a poster to present to the class about their type of physical activity.
In this lesson designed to enhance literacy skills, students learn about the positive effects that exercise has on the body and some activities they can do to improve their health.
This lesson is designed to educate students of the importance of the inclusion of physical activity in their daily routines, and ways to increase this at school, during times other than recess.
