This unit is based on the outcomes for the Saskatchewan Health Curriculum, but will meet the outcome needs of Grade 2 Health dealing with thoughts, feelings and actions and how students can deal with their experiences.

There is also a word wall for feelings and a checklist of I Can Statements for this unit.
