Next week we will be taking our Unit Test on Fitness and Nutrition.  You’ve all done such a great job on both your Exercise for Life Brochures and the Dangers of Processed Food Videos and both of those resources will be a big help in reviewing for the assessment.  Before getting started on the review, please make sure to check your classrooms and do the following:

1. Make sure the Dangers of Processed Food Video is Completed and uploaded

Turn it in to the classroom

2. Answer any of your missing reflections in your Google Classroom and turn in documents missing (if any)

Below you will find Stations and questions that will help you as you review!  You can do this individually or in pairs. Good Luck!
