For the fourth year, this program is completely virtual
The Building Healthy Superheroes field trip is a fun and interactive program designed for kindergarten students. The program teaches healthy and safe lifestyle choices for children.
The field trip has two areas: Wellness World and Safety City. As the students travel through Wellness World, they will learn the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, limiting screen time, being active, avoiding sugary drinks, taking care of their teeth and recognizing their emotions.
In Safety City, they will learn to always buckle up and use a booster seat; to use a bicycle helmet for every ride, every time; to never put their feet in the street until they have looked left-right-left and listened; and to crawl low in smoke in the event of a fire.
After the class completes an area, the teacher will receive an electronic badge, and the students will activate their healthy superpowers for the area. Once the class has received both badges and the students’ superpowers have been activated, they will be ready for the final stop, the Healthy Superhero graduation. During graduation, students will take the official Healthy Superhero pledge and transform into Healthy Superheroes! The teacher now may award their students with their very own Healthy Superhero cape!
