How to Use These Resources

TVO Learn is designed to meet each student where they are on their learning journey. Learning Activities are comprehensive and require guided instruction from an adult, while Resources for Learning, Apply the Learning prompts and Vocabulary lists work well to reinforce specific skills or to enable independent exploration of a subject. Use these helpful tips to get the most from TVO Learn.

Curriculum Overview

The expectations for Grades 5 build on students’ experiences in the primary grades and further develop the knowledge and skills they need for physical and health literacy with an emphasis on building students’ understanding of themselves in relation to others.

Learners develop an understanding of the factors that contribute to their physical and mental health and the health of others in their family and community, but with a particular focus on choices and decisions connected to their personal health with frequent opportunities to question, integrate, analyse, and apply information. Students continue to develop their locomotor and fine motor skills and develop a greater ability to combine motor skills in sequence, examining how to relate these concepts and principles to their movement skills in order to improve the quality of movement and further develop their sense of self and their identity as competent movers.

The expectations for health and physical education are organized into four distinct but related strands:

  • Social-Emotional Learning Skills
  • Active Living
  • Movement Competence: Skills, Concepts, and Strategies
  • Healthy Living

Apply the Learning

Choose from the following to consolidate learning across all curriculum strands.

 

  • What can you do to keep school and community play spaces clean, tidy, and attractive so that you can enjoy being physically active outside?
  • Identify a challenge that might make it difficult to be active every day and offer a solution that could help.

  • Fitness circuit activites often include excercises that have different purposes. Design a circuit activity of your own that includes at least three exercises and explain the purpose of each.

  • Think of three physical activities and/or games people play. Create a graphic organizer that compares the safety considerations people need to consider when playing these games.

  • Imagine you are going to spend the day outdoors on a very hot day. Create a graphic organizer or draw the proactive health measures (things you might wear, bring or do) to ensure your safety and health outdoors.
  • Think about how you throw a piece of sporting equipment such as a ball. What do you need to do to throw faster? When catching an object, how do you adjust for different speeds?
  • Think about an activity or game you enjoy. Create a drawing or infographic to illustrate how you would restructure this game so it is inclusive and works for learners of all abilities. What components of the activity could be adjusted to make it challenging and enjoyable for everyone?
  • Create a list of people or trusted adults you could turn to for help if you were being bullied.
  • Create a public service advertisement that illustrates the short and long term affects of alcohol abuse.
  • Describe some of the changes bodies go through during puberty.
  • It is normal to have stress and to have different feelings, including being happy, sad, angry, and excited at different times. What might we do to help support others around us during times of stress?
  • Think about all the different advertisments that promote different types of foods. How might advertisements have an effect on healthy food choices people make?
  • Negative actions that hurt the feelings of others can also result in stigma. Even stereotypes that might seem positive are harmful, because they do not let people be their real selves. Give an example of an action that can affect someone’s feelings, self-concept, or reputation in a positive way.
  • When it comes to supporting one another’s mental health, what are some of the things
    we can do at school and in the classroom to make everyone feel safe to talk about their mental health and ask for help?
