Unit 1: Health, Wellness, Nutrition, & Safety
We are currently learning about health, wellness, nutrition, and safety in school; however, we want to offer family support for continuing this education in the home. During this unit, your child will learn the importance of health and safety awareness. By the end of the unit, your child will have completed several activities that demonstrate his/her ability to practice health and safety precautions. To extend your child's learning the thematic backpacks are sent home with children for a week throughout the year. The thematic backpacks include materials, parent information, games, manipulative, and other resources all centered on a plan to explore the contents in a fun and engaging way at home with the family.
