For the past school year I have been working on how to create a cross curricular lesson dealing with computer science and health. The first thing I found was that this would not be easy. I chose to do a survey of all of my students to find out which activities they would most likely want to participate in. After learning this information I coordinated with our PE department to get an understanding of how we could make this work. Students were all given lessons on how to take their own blood pressure and the data would be used to help students understand Big Idea of Data and Information.
This project is called 5 components of fitness and its a great way to get students interested in computer science and their own health. Please review the lesson and let me know how it worked out for your school site.
