Sleep to remember! Remember to sleep! This TED-Ed focuses on those of us who are studying for tests or staying up late for deadlines, but The Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep can also help younger kiddos understand why consistent bedtimes are super important.

When you sleep, your body is able to regulate and balance respiration, circulation, growth, and immune response: “how your body recognizes and defends itself against bacteria, viruses, and substances that appear foreign and harmful.” Sleep is also critical to memory consolidation: the conversion of short term memories into long term memories. Watch, then sleep on it.
