One of our favorite digital resources at Van Meter is PebbleGo.
I am so excited that this week our friends at Capstone have added PebbleGo Health to the modules that make up PebbleGo. This module focuses on wellness, safety and social emotional learning.
PebbleGo Health features 156 age-appropriate articles aligned with state and national curriculum standards supporting health education, as well as a range of topics to build positive social emotional skills in support of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) framework.
From body systems and safety to self-awareness and relationships, PebbleGo Health helps students learn functional health information and develop foundational health skills. During this launch month, Capstone is offering a special Educator Preview to all educators who want to explore the new resource for free.
The module’s robust content promotes personal, family, and community health, exploring a wide-range of topics, such as: Feelings and Emotions, Health Care Visits, Health Care Workers, Healthy Habits, If You Need Help, Illnesses and Conditions, My World and My Health, Nutrition, Relationships and Friendships, Safety, Self-Awareness, and the Human Body. The module includes three extended learning exercises in each article, including a related activity and critical thinking prompts in “Share What You Know” and “Questions for Understanding.”
Earlier this week I was part of the PebbleGo Health webinar and shared lots of creative ideas to start using PebbleGo Health with your students, teachers and families.
The recording of the webinar is now available and you will find it here and a place to download the resources too.
In an upcoming post, I will be sharing more about PebbleGo Health and all of the amazing resources that are included in this important new resources.
