Healthy Hearts – Mother Teresa School, March 2017

Students who are in their 4th Year Health Science Class at Queen’s University who are doing their placement for the Heart and Stroke Foundation came in and talked to the students about Ways to Stay Healthy. We looked at healthy snacks, balanced food menus, food labels – how to read them to make sure they are healthy, how much sugar was in different drinks – cola, hot chocolate, fruit juice, power sport drinks, etc. We also talked about how much daily activity we need to help keep our hearts healthy!

Soups On! – Louis Honore Frechette, February 2017

One of our grade 5 classrooms combined literacy, health and math to give a lesson on making soup. The students learned about the healthy ingredients included in a vegetable soup by gathering in the staff room and actually making a soup. They chopped the vegetables and learned about safe kitchen practices. They used their measurement skills to properly add ingredients to the soup. When they were done making the soup, they got to enjoy it and share it with other teachers in the school. They also wrote a procedure about how to make a healthy vegetable soup.
