Kindergarten Healthy Bodies Lesson

Submitted by becky.manning on Mon, 11/20/2023 - 22:04

For Red Ribbon Week, we learned about keeping our bodies healthy. A wonderful parent volunteer came into our class and taught us how to add more fruits and vegetables into our meals. We learned what to eat to be kind to our bodies and brains. We also did a little activity with exercise. The best part of the lesson was shopping in our classroom! They got to pick healthy foods, fun outside toys, a recreation pass, waterbottle, and sunglasses. This amazing Maple Ridge parent got donations from many local businesses and the kids loved the lesson.
