WannaBee Healthy? Be Smart, Be Active, Be a Leader Curriculum Resources
The WannaBee Healthy? Be Smart, Be Active, Be a Leader curriculum is designed to assist young children (pre-K and K) in developing healthy eating and activity habits. The curriculum is designed around three bee characters- Sunny Smart, Andy Active, and LaToya Leader. Sunny Smart teaches children to Be Smart by making healthy food choices. Andy Active teaches children to Be Active by moving around and making their hearts beat faster. LaToya Leader teaches children to Be a Leader for health by sharing what they learn with others!
The curriculum teaches these concepts using math, science, creative expression, and language/literacy hands-on and interactive activities. The curriculum activities align with the Mississippi Early Learning Standards (MSELS), Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for Kindergarten and the CDC National Health Education Standards.
