Introductions and ideas

Challenge 1 Wellbeing and introductions

Activities will be separated into two sections: Firstly those related to improving your blog for your new readers and secondly ideas for posts on your blog. You can do one activity or lots of activities. What you don’t finish this week, you might want to do next week. Whenever you visit a new blog, you want to know a little about the author or group of authors. This fits very well into our first group of activities.
Ideas for posts 1. Think about the athletes you saw at either the Olympics or paralympics. How do they look after their well-being? What are some things you do or eat, that they would not use?
2. How is citizenship on the internet the same as or different to citizenship in the real world? Make a list by comparing the two situations. Is citizenship different from country to country? What makes you a citizen of your country?
3. Have you ever been in an extremely emotional situation? Tell us all about it but remember to be internet safe in what you tell us. This could be anger, sadness, happiness, frustration …
4. If you are ever in a very stressful situation, how do you calm yourself down? What are some coping strategies you use?
5. Create a collage about emotions. Have students create their own images or emoticons. Take photos of the results and create into a collage or animoto or slideshow.
6. What is your favourite sport? What skills are needed to become an elite athlete in that sport?
7. Indigenous groups will often have different games to other people. Compare games around the world that use very little equipment. Try out some of these games in your classroom.
8. I am sure all students are taught about the healthy food pyramid. But what does your food pyramid look like? Create one using real food then take a photo to include in your post.
9. Part of good digital citizenship is not being a cyber bully. Have you ever been cyber-bullied? What did you do about it? Make a list of hints for students who are being cyber-bullied. Maybe make a poster about what to do and what not to do. Perhaps you could use glogster or as a class use wallwisher.
10. In Tasmania, the health department is running a program called ‘Move Well, Eat Well‘. Does your country or state run something similar? Are there any other programs your school takes part in that helps with student well being and health?
11. Pets are often said to be helpful with a person’s well-being. How? Find some examples.If none of these ideas make you want to write a post, then tell your readers what you are being taught at the moment that relates to health, well being and citizenship. Remember you are not only taught at school but also at home, at church, in a sport team and so on.
