Healthy Habits for Healthy Kids, Years 2–3
Activities to Promote Health and Wellbeing
Help your Year 2 - 3 students learn to make healthy food choices, appreciate the importance of daily exercise and develop healthy habits they will maintain throughout their lives. Students will learn what foods are healthy and why, where their food comes from, and how and why we exercise to stay healthy with activities such as "What is a Fruit?" and "Did You Stretch Today?". Encourage your students to journal about nutrition, fitness and health to reinforce what they have learned. Healthy Habits for Healthy Kids, Years 2 - 3 has a journal available for download at go.hbe.com.au that students may use alongside the activities. Additional activities are also available to download. A Healthy Habits classroom poster is available to purchase.
