Grade 8 Health & Nutrition
During the past few weeks, the students in Grade 8 have worked very hard to plan, develop, and produce a board game, as part of the Canadian Food Guide Game Design Challenge. Throughout the term, the students have been learning to evaluate personal eating habits and food choices, based on the recommendations of Canada’s Food Guide. The students also learned strategies for promoting healthy eating habits at school, home, and in the community. The Grade 8 students gained an understanding of how to incorporate healthy strategies into daily routines to help maintain their mental health and resiliency in times of stress. As a culminating activity, the students thoroughly enjoyed playing each other’s Food Guide games.
