As part of the benchmark assignment for this course, you will be organizing and designing an upcoming Wellness Fair for your kindergarten class. To prepare for this Wellness Fair, you will develop four mini-lessons in the areas of health, safety, nutrition, and fitness throughout the course. In addition, you will research community organizations to be represented in booths at the Wellness Fair that will provide your school community with information related to health, safety, nutrition, and fitness.
For this assignment, use the “Mini-Lesson Template” to design one health mini-lesson and one safety mini-lesson for the event. Lesson topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Oral health
- Specific health issues
- Lead poisoning
- Accident prevention
- Fire/natural disaster safety
- Emotional safety
Make sure each lesson is developmentally appropriate and addresses strengths and needs of the students depicted within the “Class Profile.”
In addition, select two community organizations to host a booth at the Wellness Fair. One organization should support your health mini-lesson and one should support your safety mini-lesson. In 250-500 words, summarize the chosen organizations and why each should be featured at the school community Wellness Fair.
