​8th Grade:​  In class we are continuing our Body Image unit learning what could happen if you have a negative body image, different eating disorders and how they affect people that develop them and also we will be learning about our BMI (Body Mass Index).  This is the measurement that allows you to assess your body size, taking your height and weight into account.  There are a few different ways to measure for your BMI.
