The importance of postural ergonomics

One of the lines of inquiry that we have worked on in this unit with the 3rd grade students has been “The benefits of a healthy life”. We received a very special visit from a mother from the class who gave us a talk on postural ergonomics. This activity has had a great impact on our students’ learning because our students have realized the need to take care of our posture when working.

We have learned why it is so important to sit well in a chair appropriate to our age, the lighting and organization of our desk, the distances with respect to the screens ….

In short, our students were able to demonstrate from home as “experts” in postural ergonomics what improvements they can introduce in their home workspaces.
