In the summer, I'm always thinking about health, fitness, and nutrition. I think it's that thing called "the gift of time." That, and there aren't the fast food runs that seem to happen on busy nights of school events or soccer practices.
Here's one of the many gems over at TED-Ed. My latest discovery of their treasures is "How the Food You Eat Affects Your Brain" by Nia Nacamulli. This video analyzes how food affects our mental functions. Why we might be sluggish after lunch, why we peek and drop after a sugar fix, and how protein, fatty acids, carbs, and more affect your brain in different ways.
For lesson follow-up activities to use in class, be sure to check out the video over at TED-Ed.
