UBC Active Kids and Kinesiology Courses: 

This Winter term Active Kids is again collaborating with several Kinesiology academic courses. This will involve Kinesiology students attending various Active Kids classes to do an observation. Students will be comparing and contrasting concepts learned in their coursework related to coaching and physical development. They will then be writing a report which contributes to part of their final grade. So you may see a student watching your child’s class and taking notes.

For more information, please see our website at this page.

Nutrition Tips from the School of Kinesiology

Beets are a naturally sweet root vegetable packed with essential vitamins and minerals. When mixed into foods they can turn them into a vibrant pink colour to make it fun for kids to eat. For more information on how to incorporate beets into your diet take a look here

The Importance of Outdoor Play

With snow and rain it may be difficult to let your child go out and play, especially with the access to technology. However, playing outside can have so many benefits from developing social skills, learning to manage their own risk and safety and of course being active. Take a look here for more information on the importance of being active.
