Safety in a Variety of Environments
Overview of Concept
In K-9 Health Education and Wellness 10, students have opportunities to develop safe pedestrian/street behaviours, acquire basic first aid knowledge, consider the importance of taking responsibility for one’s actions, develop assertiveness skills to manage peer pressure, and develop strategies to reduce risk and promote safety in a variety of environments/situations. Learning opportunities inform decision-making and action to support safe practices to optimize well-being. At different grade levels, many interdisciplinary connections can be made, for example, to Science, and Physical Education.
