Help kids think more carefully about making a fit choice.
First and foremost, fit is about choices. Each day a child, no matter their age, makes many choices that impact their health and well-being. The lessons in this unit build awareness of the many moments each day when they can make a choice, then empowers them to make the best choice—the fit choice!
Ask several students to share choices they made recently, including what time of day they made the choice (e.g., in the morning, during school, at bedtime).

Understanding ChoicesNow it’s your students’ turn to make up silly questions that inspire silly answers! Read the slides aloud and have students fill in the blanks to create their own silly questions about choices.
fit choices are the choices you make that are good for your body and brain. Explain that whether it’s eating fruit with breakfast or choosing to get off the couch and move, many choices can be fit choices! Ask learners to share examples of fit choices that they make each day.
Check for understanding: What choices are good for your body and brain?
