Health and Life Skills (PK)

This is my Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Health and Life Skills curriculum. As time goes on I will continue to add projects that correspond with these units. You can also find projects on my pinterest boards.

Nutrition Unit – Good and bad food choices, and how good foods fuel our bodies

Care Unit – Taking care of your body. Learning to take care of hair and teeth, picking out weather appropriate clothing and dressing, and washing hands and body.

  • Let’s Play Dentist From Sense of Wonder
  • The “Why do we need sunscreen?” Experiment from I Can Teach My Child
  • Create a weather station where you discuss and display the weather for the day. Create a paper doll or laminated child figure with different clothing options. Each day after discussing the weather have your child dress the doll in clothes that are appropriate.

Emotions Unit - Understanding positive and negative emotions

Germ Unit – What they are, how they make you sick, and how to avoid/get rid of them.

Cleaning Unit - Picking up toys, making bed, help set table, help empty dishwasher, help with laundry, dust and wipe, and help put away groceries

Household Knowledge Unit - Learning phone number and address. Learning how to call or find help in case of an emergency. Understanding the differences between emergency and non-emergency

  • Create a phone number bracelet

** To form my preschool/pre-kindergarten curriculum outline I searched other curriculums to see what information they were covering. I also used the book “What Your Preschooler Should Know.” Finally, I added any subjects in which my son has shown interest. From there I searched for fun projects and educational activities that would teach the information for these units. If you have any questions about the information covered here please let me know **
