Healthy Relationships Unit-Health Cirriculum

Today I taught the 2nd lesson of our Healthy Relationships Unit. The first lesson, students brainstormed people they have relationships with (e.g. parents, siblings, friends, teachers, coaches). We also discussed signs of healthy relationships (caring, communication skills, respect) and relationship challenges (mean words, hitting, not including, bullying).

In our 2nd lesson, we discussed respecting visible (skin colour, clothing, body size and shape) and invisible differences (allergies, personal preferences and we also discussed gender identity and sexual orientation as per the lesson below). We had a terrific discussion in class and students contributed many insightful ideas.
