It is best at this age to connect with day-to-day routines and activities. To get your students thinking about what being healthy means, start by asking them the following questions: What do we do every day? List all of the things we do in a day (in a timeline on the blackboard or chart paper) e.g. – sleep, wake up, eat breakfast, get to school, brush teeth, put on shoes, wash hands, put my stuff away in my room, empty the garbage, play a game at recess, talk to my friend, read a book. Why do we do these things? Answers may include: to have the energy to play and learn; to feel good. Identify that many activities contribute toward being healthy.
