The design of the study I believe is perfect for younger students (K-2).  It gives them a hand on experience as well as show them how to work in a group.  The activities are very thought out and simplified for the grade level.  I love the green means "go" for food and the red means "stop and think".  Having the students become familiar with these labels at a young age is definitely valuable.
