BodiMojo.com can be a great companion to your regular health curriculum.
At BodiMojo, teens can become part of a fun, health-focused online community, and find teen-friendly tools to monitor their own health and wellness. On the site, they can create personal health profiles; set and track health goals; take health habits quizzes; use health tools such as a body mass index calculator; read teen-focused articles about nutrition, exercise, and positive body image; take health challenges with friends; or write their own articles or videos on health topics as a class assignment, then submit them to BodiMojo for potential publication on the site.
Whether you are teaching a 4-, 6-, or 8-week curriculum, BodiMojo can help by offering kids an engaging place to think about health and wellness in their own way, on their own time, with a safe community of online friends. BodiMojo’s offerings are particularly timely in light of First Lady Michelle Obama’s efforts to make obesity prevention a signature cause in 2010. And, beyond addressing issues about healthy eating and exercise, BodiMojo also covers a wide range of other topics of interest to teens, such as body image, relationships, stress, and social media.
