Question My teacher wants the topic I chose expanded

I found a topic I like but my teacher feels it needs to to be expanded. My question is, How concerned are 7th graders with their health? I saw this project on this site, I have diabetes and my family and I pay close attention to my health everyday: diet, exercise, sleep,stress etc. The teacher says that she wants more than a written survey, with questions that I will develop.
What can you suggest to make this more exxpanded.

Okay, well, there are a few ways to expand this.

One option is to compare how concerned 7th graders are with their health to, let's say adults, or 5th graders, or seniors. You could compare 6-8th graders (since I think you can more access to them in your junior high).

Also, include surveys, such as how much exercise, stress, diet, sleep habits, yes. Develop your questions not only on the amount, but the quality of exercise, diet, and sleep.

Also, you might want to test their actual physical condition. Like measuring their resting heart rate and seeing how long it takes them to recover to their resting heart rate after a few minutes of exercise. Also, you can measure their lung capacity with ballons and a tape measurer. You can compare their physical condition with how tall they are/the length of their feet. (Since 7th graders are going through puberty.)

Good luck!

Default Expanding your science project topic

Also, you might want to do statistical tests for large-enough samples of 7th graders - ie: as Dreamer pointed out, you could do tests on resting heart rates, ascertaining how many 7th graders (out of a group of say, 100), have heart rates above 75.
