In Grade 5 we just started our Health and Wellness unit and the students are very excited. Our central
idea is "personal well being is dependent on a complex balance or inter-connected factors." Our lines of inquiry are: Changes in your body, Building a network of support and Caring for your changing body.
The importance of proper food and exercise is crucial to learn at an early age and it should be a fun unit. One of the activities Ms. Skye and I are having the students complete is researching and leading 10-15 minutes of exercise for our "Fitness Mornings"
Here are some resources that can be used to find activities and games if you want to lead your own Fitness Mornings!
