Give your class the tools to lead happy & healthy lives! With the Healthy Kids Curriculum you will have the resources and mindsets to practice great hygiene, eat healthy foods, exercise daily, meditate, and much more!
This is a no-prep, 8-week unit to teach your students the importance of a healthy mind & body.
The Healthy Kids Curriculum includes 200 pages of lessons, video resources, craft ideas, hooks, questions, answers, and more. In this unit, we focus on the habits and mindsets that lead to health and success. Most of these topics will never be included in a traditional curriculum -- but they are some of the most important life skills a person can possess! Included are the important and unique health topics below:
NUTRITION & HEALTHY FOOD
It's amazing when your students can tell the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods, but be careful! Once kids learn about healthy food, they tend to take it very seriously (so keep the candy hidden)! Read more...

Help your students stay healthy and avoid those contagious germs! Take the time to learn the right way to wash your hands, brush your teeth, and more! With healthy habits, kids will come to school everyday looking and feeling like a million bucks! Read more...

“Mr. G.'s Punk Rock Preschool did not simply teach our daughter what to learn; it taught her how to learn. We have seen her confidence grow exponentially since she was in Punk Rock Preschool, and she has taken that self-assurance along with her as she recently transitioned to kindergarten."
