Health and life Skills


What your child is learning

Grade 3 students understand that turning off the TV or video games to be physically active is a good choice, and as important as eating well. Your child will know how to handle an emergency and how to stay safe in such places as the beach, the farm and their own neighbourhood. They will explore ways to deal with stress and change, and learn how to build stronger friendships, even with people very different than themselves. Your child will also develop their test-taking skills. Still curious? Refer to the program of studies for more information about Grade 3 Health and Life Skills.

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.
