(Challenge ends 11/30/18)
How much sleep should kids get each night? Everyone is different but typically elementary and middle school age kids need between 9 – 12 hours of sleep each night. This number can get disturbed with clock changes (ie Daylight Saving Time), sports practice schedules, and technology use.
How do you know if your child is getting enough sleep at night?
It’s time for SCIENCE!
Note: This should be called the #SleepChallenge, but my kids would never agree to something that implies they need more sleep. So, hence, the #ClockChallenge. Plus, it sounds more “science experiment-y”.
BONUS: You can use this as a school science fair project!
This is a child driven challenge so they should take full ownership. Parents, you are welcome to stand-by to assist but please don’t hover.
Kids, here are your instructions for those willing to accept the challenge.

First, have your parent sign up here to get your worksheet.
After you receive the worksheet, print it out. You will start this challenge on a Sunday night. Don’t wait until the last minute! Sign up now, read the directions, and get ready.
