In developing our lessons and activities, we made some assumptions about the hardware and software that would be available in the classroom for teachers who visit the LETSNet Website. We assume that teachers using our Internet-based lessons or activities have a computer (PC or Macintosh) with the necessary hardware components (mouse, keyboard, and monitor) as well as software (operating system, TCP/IP software, networking or dial-up software, e-mail and a World Wide Web client program, preferably Netscape, but perhaps Mosaic or Lynx). In the section below, we specify any "special" hardware or software requirements for a lesson or activity (in addition to those described above) and the level of Internet access required to do the activity.
- Special hardware requirements: none.
- Special software requirements: none.
- Internet access:none.
Encourage students to choose a topic that shows a lifestyle change based on their research. (Suggested topics: How to Have a Healthy Heart, Plan a Healthy Menu, The Affects of Smoking on Your Heart, Active People Have Lower Heart Rates or Eating Healthy Promotes a Healthy Heart)
Using the data and the resources gathered in lesson four: students will prepare and present a 5 minute oral presentation with a visual aid.
