If you are a health or physical education teacher, you might ask your high school students to research a wearable technology that they might be interested in purchasing. For a sample worksheet, see figure 6.2. This activity would meet two of SHAPE America's grade-level outcomes for high school physical education and could help students better understand what is involved in becoming a conscious consumer of fitness products. Wearable technology may constitute a big investment for your students after graduation, and you can help them prepare to make good use of this growing market.
