MYP 1’s Health Rally

Year 7 students educate the primary students about living a healthy lifestyle.

Recently, MYP 1 students completed their summative assessment for their nutrition and fitness unit, a Health Rally organized for the Primary Students. Over the course of the unit, the students worked hard to develop a health rally that will inspire younger students to pursue a healthy lifestyle through improving daily eating and physical activity choices. Below you can see a few of the posters that decorated the room during our rally. Each poster was created by one of the students from MYP 1.

During the rally, the MYP 1 students discussed the immediate and long-term benefits of a healthy lifestyle, including increased energy, improved mood, and reduced risk of chronic diseases. The students emphasized the importance of healthy eating and regular physical activity and talked about the nutrients that are necessary for our development.

The students also discussed the specific nutrients that are important for youth, including macronutrients such as carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats, and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. The students explained what food and beverages contain these nutrients and provided examples of healthy meal and snack options.

The students spoke with the primary students about the link between nutrients, our food, our physical activity, and our overall happiness and well-being. They showed that a healthy lifestyle leads to better academic performance, better sleep, a stronger immune system and many more benefits.

At the end of the rally, we had a fun quiz/game to help reinforce the information we had shared.

Overall, I would consider the Health Rally a great success! The MYP 1 students had a lot of fun putting it together and presenting it. On the behalf of MYP 1, I can express our thanks to the primary students for giving us this opportunity to present what we have learned. We hope that the primary students enjoyed the rally and were able to walk away with some valuable information that will help them in life.
