Class Summary - We started out class handing back the tests from last class period. Students can retake the nutrients test anytime next week ONLY (anytime between May 11th - May 15th). It will be an alternate form and the average grade between the two will be taken. Today we lectured about body image. Students were given a fill in the blank packet to help with note taking. We talked about what body image is and how we can improve it. We talked about the importance of feeling good about ourselves. We looked at customs that certain cultures have and related them to things we might do here in the US that might be harmful to our bodies just to fit a certain 'idea' of beauty.
