Transcript of Truth Day Presentation

We predict that older students will have a later bedtime, because they tend to stay up late in order to study or go online. However, younger students should sleep earlier because their parents may give them a curfew.We predict that older students will have a later bedtime because they will have more homework and tests to study for. If that's not the case, they are probably staying up to party or go clubbing. On the contrary, we think that younger students will have an earlier bedtime because their parents are likely to give them a curfew, and obviously they won't be old enough to go out late at night by themselves. Do students have a very late bedtime? Experiment Question We chose to investigate why students in Hong Kong have late bedtimes. Prediction Variables Why did we choose this? Independent Gender
Year Group Control Students from SIS
Living near SIS
(30 mins from school We choose this topic because we found it very interesting to investigate and find the real truth behind the myth. - Surveys
- Secondary Research We used the internet to find out about the besdtimes of students in USA and China. Desktop Research We used the internet to research about the bedtimes of students in different countries and the importance of adolescents getting enough sleep. Dependent Bedtime
Amount of Sleep Responses from around the WORLD USA:
Hilikus : I turned 16 not too long ago, and while I was 15 I didn't have a bedtime. I went to bed when I was tired. I had to be in my room anytime past 11 or 11:30 (if I turn down the video games, my parents don't even care about that too much) but I also have a computer in my room so I'll be up for hours some nights. UK:
Ballbab : When i was 15 i dint have a bedtime because my parents felt i was mature enough to make that decison on my own. My curfew however was midnight on weekends and 10 on school nights. Australia:
I always went to bed at 10:30 sharp by myself, because it takes me a long time to go to sleep and I may not be asleep until 11:30 and I had to get up at 6:15, so I was Getting 6.25 hours of sleep, Which isn't even enough and I was always tired after school, so it depends on you and your sleeping patterns and how well you function on certain amounts of sleep. We predict that older students in SIS will have a later bedtime because they will have more homework and tests to study for. If that's not the case, they are probably staying up to party or go clubbing. On the contrary, we think that younger students will have an earlier bedtime because their parents are likely to give them a curfew, and obviously they won't be old enough to go out late at night by themselves. However, students in other countries might have a earlier bedtime due to different study syllabus. Results Answer to..


Yes indeed.
In some countries kids go to bed rather early, by US standards. Studies by Education/health systems have also found this to be for the best (a 11 year old who goes to bed at 9pm will generally fare better in school than one who sits up until 11 pm) "Early to bed, early to rise" is true. Some countries/societies understand this. 8 - 10 hours a day is the norm.
You will also stay healthier and live longer.

Here in China, for instance, most everybody breaks for lunch about 11:30am, have a big lunch, and then get an hour or so sleep ('siesta' the Spanish would say)
Many boarding schools here have 'lights out' at 10pm. 'wake up' is 6am, and morning exercise starts at 6:30am ( in our School, Tai Chi starts at 6am, is voluntary, but most attend). There is another break for dinner at 6:pm, and last class finishes at 7:30 - 8:00pm. The kids benefit greatly from plenty of sleep. Those that don't, are easily identified by their school results and overall attitude and performance.
Our kids are happy, healthy, and wise.

My friends and tell me that in USA, teens often stay up very late, encouraged by parents who put TV and computer in the kids bedroom. This would help explain the so high delinquency, failure, and aberrant behavior and attitude. They are not really stupid, lazy or rude, by any means, just suffering long term effects of sleep deprivation (and possibly junk food)

It's better, more productive, and much cheaper, to have a fence at the top of the cliff, rather than an ambulance at the bottom. Do bedtimes for teens differ in different countries ? ( Yahoo answers ) When Do you

Average answar to " Do you have a Bedtime" : yes
Average answar to " Does school effect you sleep " : Yes
Average answar to " Do students in HK go to sleep later that students in the rest of the world " : Yes Averages Conclusion To conclude, our prediction was correct. Our results clearly showed that students in higher years have late sleeping times. And schoolwork is a major impact to student's sleeping times. Also, students from lower years (Year 7 and 8) usually have a late sleeping time, due to their social life and media. Mostly, students stay up late for school work, but a certain percentage of the students sleep late due to social media and gamming. We found out that most students find themselves sleep late especially high school students due to their studies and The average bedtime for SIS students is 11-12 while the average bedtime for students in the rest of the world is 10.30 Raw Data 23 out of more than 400 results By: Shreyashi, Alicia, Wan-Yee, Larissa, Tinaz and Yashaa
