Title of Bulletin Board: Free Apps for a Healthy Body

Category: Apps

Suggested Grade Level: 6-8

Materials: Paper

Description:

This board has an iPhone in the middle with 12 apps that incorporate a fitness component. Out to each side of the phone are descriptions of the apps and how they can be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle. The purpose is to use the technology that students already have with them at all times, in a beneficial manor. By showing students these apps, they can now test them out and find which ones will work best for their healthy choices.
