This week, we’ll peek at Health A, Horsemanship B, and Ice Skating C.

In one Health A lesson, kids learned about the importance of sleep.

Getting enough sleep is very important for our health! When we sleep our body fulfills many important functions. Our brains detox and consolidate information into memories when we are sleeping! Did you know that kids do most of their growing while asleep? Getting a good night’s sleep helps us feel calm, happy, and ready to face the day.

This Horsemanship B lesson introduced students to the sport of vaulting on horseback.

Have you ever heard of vaulting on a horse? A REAL horse, not in gymnastics?
Vaulting is like gymnastics and dance on horseback, and is an international sport.

Ice Skating C, students glimpsed into the daily life of an Olympic athlete.

Do you watch the winter Olympics? If you do, what is your favorite event to watch? Have you ever thought about what a typical day looks like for an Olympic athlete?
