Title of Bulletin Board: Growing Ideas on Wellness

Category: Wellness

Suggested Grade Level: K-2

Materials: Apple Print outs, Colored paper, colored pencils


Part of our Personal and Mental Health unit, students were tasked with demonstrating their understanding of healthy mindful actions by writing down these actions around their apple in a circle. Some examples were "hugging a parent" talking with a friend" "sharing with others" and so on - basically any action that would make the students feel better about themselves, causing them to feel better all around. We added the apples to a tree and added some silly squirrels on the bottom; helping to reinforce what the apples are all about.

Additional Information:

1st Grade, visual aides were provided to help students spell. Students got to choose which color they wanted their apple.
