    {K_peer_pressure1.gif} This site is a veritable cornucopia of kid-appropriate information about a myriad of topics such as peer pressure,substance abuse, stealing etc. The term "peer pressure" is clearly defined, and I really like how this article mentions that there are two types of peer pressure-positive and negative peer pressure. Positive peer pressure is a good thing and is something that all students should strive for, as this simply entails encouraging peers to make good decisions rather than bad ones. This website can be left up to students to explore on their own time or it would serve as a great basis for a research paper.

    of anger {anger1.jpg}
    This is a short video that cuts right to the heart of anger managment. It features two animated teens talking about "the anger rules". These are to never hurt yourself, others or property when you get angry. The video also touches on why it is a good idea to walk away from situations in which we find ourselves getting angrier by the minute. This video is sure to grab students' attention and is quite packed with useful information, considering that it is only around 1.5 minutes long.

    {kidnetic_black.jpg} This site is a one stop website for kids who want to learn how to eat and live in a healthy manner. There are many healthy recipes that kids can easily make on their own. There are also fun fitness games in which kids can do fitness challenges such as hopping on one foot for 10 seconds, right at their computer. I can definitely see myself recommending this website to my students as a good resource to use when they are looking for additional ways to be healthy.

    This is a short but really sweet commercial that seeks to teach children that it is better if they just are themselves when they are trying to be accepted by their peers. The video features a young boy who is anxious to impress the girl who has just moved next door. He imagines being different people such as football player, an adventurer and a mob boss, only to have each of these plans turn out badly. He finally decides to just be himself and he is delighted to find that the girl likes him just for who he is. It was aired in the 1990s, so it is a bit dated, but has a great message nonetheless!

    This is a great way for kids to look at the differences between the Canada's Food Guide and the one that is specifically tailored for the Aboriginal people of Canada. Students will notice that some indigenous foods such as bannock and wild game are mentioned.

    {reversible_and_irreversible_changes.jpg} This game lets students try to dissolve different substances such as flour, sugar and sand in water and then allows them to experiment in order to determine if these are reversible or irreversible changes. This is a great way to teach students the concept of reversible vs. irreversible changes.
