Topic: Well-Being
Grade: K-3
Type of Resource: Activity, Chart, Lesson Plan, Website
This lesson plan introduces students to body image and learning that it is okay to be different. Body image relates to how we see ourselves: our size, shape, colour (anything that contributes to what our body looks like). This can be anything from our freckles to our feet. It also includes how we “dress up” and try to change our bodies. This lesson will teach students that all bodies are different and that our bodies allow us to do many different things. Children at this age can begin to form negative attitudes around “difference” so it is important for them to learn to appreciate that everyone’s body is different and that is positive.
