This is a class to be carried out after the winter break, and this will present a perfect opportunity for the teacher to initiate a discussion about health. So many people come to school with common ailments such as sneezing, coughing and flu. The teacher will introduce the topic of being healthy and discuss with the children how one can maintain good health. There are three phases of this project. the first phase introduces the topic and gets the children engaged. The second phase involves some exposure to the activities that lead to good health, and the last phase is the actual practical expecting children to be involved in the same activities that they had seen (Klein & Farooq, 2013).
There are three stages of the project. The first stage aims at familiarizing the issue of healthy self to the children. It will be about getting them to understand the concept. The teacher can give an example. “I eat fruits to maintain a healthy diet. A healthy diet makes me healthy”.
This phase will end with directions for the next phase. The children will be encouraged to ask questions about how their activities contribute to good health. These will be documented and kept for the next lesson (Klein & Farooq, 2013).
The teacher should try and explain how the activities contribute to good health as an introductory part before inviting guest experts to help the children understand the concept. Each guest will be expected to show some practical work demonstrating how an activity contributes to good health. The teacher should ensure that the children understand the concept of each activity’s contribution to good health.
