As part of the benchmark assignment for this course, you have been asked to organize and design 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 part of the assignment, design one nutrition mini-lesson and one fitness mini-lesson for the event. Lesson topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Meal planning
- School garden
- Label reading
- Food safety
- Healthy choices
- Healthy lifestyle
- Muscle strength
- Being active
Make sure each lesson is developmentally appropriate and addresses strengths and needs of the students depicted within the “Class Profile.”
For each mini-lesson, complete the four parts of the “COE Lesson Plan Template” Section I, located in the Student Success Center.
In 250-500 words, reflect upon your instructional choices in relation to the “Class Profile” and summarize the chosen organizations and why each should be featured at the school community Wellness Fair.
Submit your two mini-lessons and justification as one submission.
