Within the Ontario curriculum, this package can apply to various areas within Health Education.
As we know, allergies are often so severe that a child may lose their life if they come in contact with an allergen. Therefore, this is a very serious and important topic to ensure students are empathetic towards others and have a greater understanding of the severe harm that some of their classmates may face on a daily basis.
This package can help specifically with the grade 2 curriculum on Healthy Eating (C2.2) and more specifically within Personal Safety and Injury Prevention:
