Week 5 – Final Project
Health and Safety Community Night
[WLO: 3] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4]
Your director reminds you that your Lead Teacher had volunteered to run the Health and Safety Community Night in two weeks and now that responsibility has fallen on you! She has a nutritionist scheduled to come in and address your chosen age group. The nutritionist has a presentation prepared and she is willing to answer questions after the presentation.
You will need to create two different fun activities that can be used that evening to teach the community how to enforce health, nutrition or safety measures at home. This community night will also serve as professional development for the staff. Your director has asked for everything to be submitted in the next week so she can help you plan and gather materials. She has also told you that you will have access to as many teachers as you need (for extra support), but you will need to conduct an additional training to brief them on the night. This will be a fabulous opportunity for you to continue to impress her!
