We have explored many areas of health and wellness this week. Based on the information presented in Chapters 5 and 6 of your text, choose one theme that you would like to explore further. Develop this theme into an engaging story that can be shared with children and families.
Choose one of the following themes for your storybook:
- Engaging in Physical Activity
- Nutritious Eating
- Illness/Infection Prevention
- Staying Healthy in School
- Staying Healthy at Home
Once you have selected your theme, you will use either Storybird or PowerPoint to design and share your story. The story/presentation will discuss the chosen theme by presenting at least five teaching points to children in a developmentally appropriate, creative, and engaging way. These could be facts from the textbook, ideas, strategies, or information that are important to understand. For example, you may wish to include a page on how to wash hands. Washing hands would be a teaching point that you want them to understand. This may include the recommended steps to proper hand washing, and may also include pictures, sounds, or audio to help engage children. Be as creative as you’d like, but be sure to include at least five teaching points related to your theme.
The storybook or PowerPoint should be 10 to 15 pages/slides in length (not including the title and reference pages/slides). You will include two to three scholarly sources to support your theme. Be sure to cite these in APA format on the reference page.
Paste the link to your Storybird onto a Word document for submission or upload your PowerPoint in the assignment dropbox. You will also share the link to your Storybird or upload your PowerPoint within the Doc Sharing tab of the course. (Please see the Course Materials section of the classroom, under the Course Home tab in the left navigation, for a brief Doc Sharing video tutorial.)
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
