Mental Fitness – Fostering Positive Body-Image
Students will be introduced to Canadian Olympians with a focus on adopting and maintaining healthy active lifestyles and having a positive self-perception of their own body.
The goal of this resource is to provide teachers, students (both male and female) and parents with recommendations to create safe environments and foster self-confidence to increase participation in physical activity and sport.
Expanding on the 2012-2013 classroom resource Give Your Everything: Get Active, athletes’ journeys and stories are used as a means to feature and promote physical activity, sport and positive body-image. Included in this resource are a teacher’s guide, parent’s guide, student activities and extensions as well as original narratives featuring Canadian Olympic Team members.
