Grade 2
Health and life Skills


What your child is learning

Your child will understand how to take care of their body by keeping active and by eating healthy foods. They’ll become aware of how to answer the phone and door safely and who to trust in the neighbourhood; e.g., the police or Block Parents. By organizing their desk and volunteering around the school, your child will learn how to set goals and get things done. For more about Grade 2 Health and Life Skills, refer to the program of studies.

How your child is assessed

Your child’s learning is assessed using a variety of tools and strategies within the classroom. Ask your child’s teacher what methods they are using. The different assessment methods tell you and your child’s teacher about your child’s strengths, the areas in which they might grow and how well your child is doing throughout the course. Your child’s teacher can then change or refine their teaching plans to ensure that learning activities better meet the needs of your child. At the end of the course, your child is assessed and their achievement is reported so that you know if they have achieved the expected learning outcomes for their grade.

Resources to help your child

A variety of digital and print resources, developed by publishers, Alberta Education or Alberta teachers, are available to help students learn. Teachers may select, and bring into the classroom, numerous innovative and creative resources to create rich learning experiences for your child.
