I love to start the New Year teaching the children all about staying healthy.
I wanted to share this Healthy Body! Healthy Me! packet Dr. Jean and I created. It is a COMPLETE primary healthy program perfect for K-2. The packet includes 2 Prezis with LOTS of videos- songs, stories, and anchor charts; activities; writing prompts; anchor charts; and lesson plans. You are all set for Health with this unit! These are all of the activities and lessons I use, and my students always love them and have so much fun.
I love teaching the children all about blood, because it's always something they like to learn about.
There is an activity for each part of the blood. This is an example of the Platelet Activity.
I always do this activity in September and then right before our Open House in spring so I can hang it up to show the parents. I put a photo in the smaller rectangle, and the children draw themselves in the larger one.
This goes with the hand washing/germ activity. The kids love this one! There are lots of healthy habit activities!
Safe and Not Safe Foods
We cover all areas of "STREAM" which is "STEM with reading and art added in- as well as writing prompts!
This packet has two comprehensive Prezis with videos for each topic to teach and reinforce lessons. These are so much fun to use during those extra minutes you have each day- or as a lesson on its own!
This part of the Prezi is great for talking about emotions. I also use this when I'm teaching the children about adding details and feelings in their writing.
This part of the Prezi helps teach the children ALL about safety in different situations.
We watch these videos a lot as reminders...
This is the second Prezi- full of our favorite shake breaks.
Have fun staying healthy!
