This unit is based on the outcomes for the Saskatchewan Health Curriculum, but will meet the outcome needs of Grade 2 Health dealing with illness and disease and the impact on personal health. There are six lesson plans that include children's literature suggestions and activity suggestions for students. There is also a checklist of I Can Statements for this unit.
Examine social and personal meanings of “respect” and establish ways to show respect for self, persons, living things, possessions and the environment
a. Develop a common understanding and use of respectful language to talk about respect (tone of voice, manners, behaviours)
b. Realize a range of culturally sensitive ways to show respect (handshake, eye contact) and begin to develop the abilities to act on this realization, including:
- recognize and exclusionary behaviours
- identify ways to show genuine kindness and gratitude
c. Determine how to show respect for own and other’s material possessions (ask before borrowing, put away when done using)
d. Illustrate what respect looks, like, sounds like, and feels like (take turns, listen without interrupting, ask for and provide help, smile, use people’s names, disagree politely, adapt tone of voice, avoid ‘name-calling’ and unkind criticism of others.
e. Understand, practice and share basic interpersonal skills (asking for a turn, offering assistance, saying please and thank you) when supported to do so
f. Discuss the importance of respect within relationships (safety, recognition of gifts and talents)
g. Describe how people (characters in a story) demonstrate or do not demonstrate respect for each other, personal gifts, material possessions, and/or the environment
h. Explore ways of reducing pollution (air, water) to maintain a healthy environment (reduce, reuse, repair, recycle)
