Make your own opinion about how you should look after your own body.

Remember exercise is important too!

Write out your opinion on folio. Did you answer all three parts of the question? How well do you think you have answered? Tick the box, which shows how you feel about your answers.

Task: Is my diet healthy?

In your groups, plan three questions you need to ask your moms to check if you have a healthy diet. Think of the information that you have read about food and what you already know about healthy food.

Write your questions.

Write Mom’s or Dad’s answers.

Now that you have collected your data, compare your answers with those of your friends.

  • Do you still think that you have a healthy diet?
  • What can you do to improve the way you eat?

Ask five of your friends how many times a month they eat fast food.

  • Complete the diagram.

Who of your friends has the healthiest diet?

  • It is important that the children see that the dietary rules in many religions are attempts to honour their gods. Sometimes they came about as a matter of simple hygiene. But at this level, it can be regarded as keeping their bodies pure and healthy as a way of thanking God for the gift of their lives.
  • In completing the above task, reassure atheists or children who do not go to church that they can simply give their own opinion. Children who are able or wish to do their own research can look up the dietary rules of other religions and share them with the class.
  • The rubric can be used to define the task for the children or yourself to assess their work. Explain to the children what you would expect from them to earn a happy face or, if you were assessing, a rating of 5. They must include the 3 parts of the question and, for example, when talking about exercising to have a healthy body, they must give a reason. Why do they think exercise is important?
  • Remind the children of the importance of exercise in building a healthy body. Muscles need to stretch and move. One should not stay in a sitting position all day. Include a few lessons of movement: walking, jogging, skipping and running. Even dancing will make the muscles move . Bring music into the lesson or ask the children to bring theirs and allow free ‘dance’ time at the end of the lesson.
  • In each session include a few exercises to help suppleness, touching toes (allow bent knees, especially at first) sitting cross legged, stretching bodies into different shapes. Always emphasize care of the back and only to do what your body can do – don’t copy your neighbour and listen to your own body. If something is sore, STOP! End off with a game (or the dance time) and a cool down time.
  • Children can lie or sit with eyes closed in a completely relaxed position for the last few minutes. Choose a winner or allow them to stand and return to line or class one at a time. This also serves to restore discipline after an exciting lesson!
