Children and Hospitals Week Is Back!
For the second 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, while introducing them to a doctor’s office, hospital and the wonderful people who work with kids every day!
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; to crawl low in smoke; and to stop, drop and roll if their clothes are on fire.
After the class visits an area, the teacher will receive a 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 their Healthy Superhero graduation. At the final stop, they will take the official Healthy Superhero pledge and transform into Healthy Superheroes! The teacher may now award their students with their very own Superhero cape! Teachers who are unable to distribute capes will receive a PowerPoint presentation they can use to customize on-screen capes with each student’s name.
