Leadership and Health Promotion
Our Leadership and Health Promotion Resource provides knowledge and resources to students so that they can take active roles in creating a healthier environment in their school and community. By combining wellness and leadership into one resource, students will become familiar with health concepts and be equipped with the strategies to improve their own and their peers’ lifestyles. Students will learn about the three components of wellness that are essential to create sustainable healthy living. Includes 12 lesson plans to coincide with Leadership 9 curriculum (with curriculum links), leadership extension activities, and a CD with all handouts/activities from the lesson plans.
Target Audience: Teachers, Leaders and staff that want to educate students on the importance of wellness. Can be used in the classroom setting or with a wellness team. Curriculum links set for Grade 9 but the information is relevant for Grades 7 – 12.
Yoga Techniques for the Classroom – Grade 7 – 9
Are you looking for a way to incorporate Yoga into your classroom? The new Yoga Techniques for the Classroom Program includes both PowerPoint and Yoga Cards to help bring energy, balance, calm and relaxation to staff and students. This session includes yoga techniques, games, discussion, and brainstorming.
Lessons From the Heart Grade 7 – 12
Using Heart Rate Monitors in a fun, interactive format to educate youth about their heart health and how their body responds to physical activity. The workshop can be used by teachers as professional development or it can be delivered directly to students in class!
The Lessons From the Heart Program uses heart rate monitors to teach students and adults about how their heart responds to physical activity. The program allows students to be compared to their previous effort, rather than other students in their class. Lessons From the Heart can be directly linked with the outcome based physical education curriculum. Focusing on the area of Functional Fitness, many objectives can be achieved through the use of this heart rate monitor program.
This program also includes many crossover lesson plans to other subject areas including health, science, math, and english.
For more information on the Lessons From the Heart program including rentals, workshops and presentations, please call your local Be Fit For Life Resource Centre.
