What is ‘My Body Matters’?

My Body Matters is one of our Life Education Modules. It is a fun interactive learning experience that aims to empower children to make safer and healthier choices. 

Children will have enjoyed animated stories, engaged in hands-on activities, sung songs, and taken part in discussion and problem solving with their peers.

My Body Matters focuses on things children can do to keep themselves healthy - covering hygiene, nutrition, physical activity, and safety at home, school, and in the community.

Clearly aligned to the Australian Curriculum, this module helps children understand that a healthy lifestyle is an important step towards making positive healthy choices now and into the future.

The learning also continues in the classroom with their teacher, with the help of a range of interactive online resources, and a fun-filled student workbook.

What can you do at home

We also encourage you to extend your child’s learning, by working with them to explore the activities and to start the conversations listed on these three downloadable posters.
