THE CHILDREN’S WELLNESS MOONSHOT CALENDAR: A Year of Inspiration
The Global Wellness Institute created The Children’s Wellness Moonshot Calendar to help educators teach children about the importance of wellness. This special program is part of The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease, the GWI’s call to action to eradicate preventable, chronic diseases around the world. Each month of this colorful hanging calendar will inspire your students to make wellness a fun and important part of their daily lives. Your hanging calendar will come assembled. Just display it in your classroom or community to spark creative projects that support a world free of preventable disease.
HOW TO USE THE CHILDREN’S MOONSHOT CALENDAR
The Children’s Moonshot Calendar comes with a monthly call-to-action to encourage educators, teachers, youth program managers, parents, and other supporters to introduce wellness to students and children in an engaging way. We recommend using each month’s focus as a springboard for curriculum, conversations, coloring, songs, and games to explore and embrace a variety of healthy habits from an early age.
