Health: Moving My Body and Keeping Fit


Objectives:

Children will learn that being active and exercising helps the body to stay healthy and strong.

Explain that our body needs to exercise and move a lot to keep strong and healthy. Moving keeps our heart, lungs, and muscles strong and healthy. When we exercise hard we need to make sure that our body doesn’t run out of energy. We need to drink water and fill our body with healthy food that will give us lots of energy. Have children point out the foods that give us energy.

Music and Movement:
